Toledo-Trampled Bates Bobcats 
Tangle With Redmen Tomorrow 

Bobcats, Losing To Toledo To Tune of 42-0, 
Seek To Overpower Injury-Ridden Eckmen 

Still smarting from the effects of 
a ringing 42-0 defeat at the hands of 
the University of Toledo, a neverthe- 
less powerful Bate* squad will be 
pointing for a victory over the U of 
M gridsters at Alumni (Field this Sat- 

Although the Bobcats were severe- 
ly trounced, they will be in shape 
physically for this tilt as Coach Ducky- 
Pond yanked his first string players 
from the lineup when the Toledo 
gridsters turned the contest into a 

Blanchard Back 

The Bobcats have ten first string 
men who already have met the Red- 
men twice. All New England Back 
Art Blanchard is back and he will 
have to be stopped if the Maroon and 
White hopes to pull out a victory 
on Saturday. 

Injuries Plague Eckmen 

Although the Eckmen have had 
only two weeks practice behind them, 
the squad has been plagued by an 
unusual number of injuries with the 
effect that the starting lineup against 
Bates continually has been revised. 

At left end Tommy Eck plans to 
alternate with sophomore Phil Roth 
and Hatch Hall while at the other 
flank Co-captain Bob Raymond and 
T >->V. Gleason will be used. Russ Ken- 
yon, who was recently Bhifted to end 
is sidelined temporarily with a char- 
ley horse while Bill Looney is also on | 
the disabled list with bruised ribs.

V Of M Mourns Passing 
Of Chester F. Bowen 

Chet Bowen '49, sports editor of 
the Collegian, died at Massachusetts 
General Hospital August 28 after 
several weeks' illness. 

An honors graduate of Ipswich 
High School, Chet was well known 
both in his home town of Ipswich 
and on the U of M campus, where 
he was active in fraternity affairs as

Summer School Had Barbeque 
Conferences, 1000 Students 

Summer may be a time of rest, or 
at least a change of environment for 
most of us, but at the U of M campus 
it was highlighted by a record en- 
rollment in the summer school, new 
appointments to the staff, and visits 
from delegations to campus confer- 
ences on everything from public 
health to archery. 

More than 1000 students attended 
both sessions of the summer school, 
an all-time record for the University 
in summer session enrollment. Mean- 
while, President Ralph A. Van Meter 
set a new record of his own for the 
number of additions to the staff dur- 
ing a two month period. He made 49 
appointments between July 1 and 
August 31. 

Off campus, three former mem- 
bers of the COLLEGIAN staff 
started hacking out careers in 
the world of journalism. Carroll 
Robbins '48, former managing 
editor, is now a reporter on THE 

ard Zahn '48, former editor of 
The Statesman at Fort Devens 
and later a member of the Col- 
legian staff, is working for the

Miss Margaret Hamlin, Placement 
Officer for Women at the University, 
retired on August 31 after nearly 30 
years of service. 

She was named Counsellor for Wo- 
men here Dec. 1, 1918. In 1934 she 
became the first placement officer for 
women, and since then she provided 
vocational guidance and job place- 
ment service to more than 1500 coeds. 

More than 100 archers attended the 
Massachusetts State Archery Associa- 
tion tournament held here in August, 
and also in that month, 200 summer 
session students made a pilgrimage

University Enrollment To Top 4000; 
2654 Undergrads Set New Record 

900 More Students In Four Year College Here Than Last Year 
1371 In Junior Class Exceeds Total Enrollment Of Pre-War Years 

More than 4,000 students will be enrolled in the University of 
Massachusetts this month, as a record-breaking 2654 registered in 
the undergraduate college in Amherst this week and H08 registered 
at Devens. 

Dorms Incomplete; 
60 Housed In Cage 

Housing "blues" may be the theme 
song for many students for at least 
the next several weeks, a Collegian 
survey indicated as the University 
greeted 3300 students for its 82nd 
academic year. Here are the facts: 

Approximately 60 students will be 
living rent free in the Physical Edu- 
cation building cage until close to 
Nov. 1. Private rooms are available 
for these students, but they will need 
cars to reach the campus, Housing 
Administrator Herbert Randolph said. 

"Although several have asked to be 
allowed to continue living in the 
cage," Mr. Randolph reported, "these 
accommodations are only to house the 
overflow, and all will have to move 
to regular rooms on campus as soon 
as new dormitories are ready." 

Hampshire House, a cinderblock 
dormitory for 30 married couples, will 
be ready on or before Oct. 16, Mr. 
Randolph paid. I t ond dormitory, 
Plymouth House, will accommodate 
222 men beginning about Nov. 1. 
Hampshire and Plymouth houses will 
absorb the rent free group in the

64 Faculty Additions 
include Dean Of Men 

Making way for a record breaking 
enrollment of 3304 students, a Dean 
of Men a new Placement Officer for 
Women, and 64 new faculty members 
have been appointed to the University 
staff, it was announced this week by 
President Ralph Van Meter. 

Robert S. Hopkins, Jr., has been 
appointed the first Dean of Men in 
the history of the University. 

Carol Burr Gawthrop, Vocational 
Counselor to the Y.W.C.A. in New 
York, will take the place of Miss 
Margaret Hamlin as Placement Officer 
for Women. Miss Hamlin retired the 
past summer after nearly 30 years 
of service to the University. 

Dr. Philip Gamble, head of the 
department of economics, has been 
named acting dean of the new School 
of Business Administration. The 
school also came in for its share of 
new faculty members, adding six

What We Are And Aren't 

To RVOid any misunderstanding about the role of the Collegian on cam- 
pus, we reprint here our purpose m stated last year: 

1. To report news of campus activities. 

2 To express student and faculty opinion. 

;{ To offer students en opportunity to Require newspaper experience 
and skill in writing, as well as knowledge of the advertising, circulation and 
business aspects of newspaper work. 

1. To support the best traditions of the University. 

;,. To record the history of the University. 

It will be noted thai we neither claim nor want to be a gripe sheet, hu- 
mor l.ftrr, or partisan organ for any faction. Our main purpose is im- 
partially to recrd news. Kxpression of student and faculty opinion is pro- 
vided through the Brickbats column, and we welcome letters from readers 
M long as they are signed and do not violate the laws of libel or decency. 
We reserve the right, of course, to comment editorially either on the con- 
tent of letters received or on the conduct of campus affairs in general. 

It should be remembered, however, that the Collegian is not a student 

action committee, and cannot he held responsible for correcting all campus 

ills. We will certainly oppose any action contrary to the best interests of the 

student body, and will "sound off" when we feel that any such actions have 

n contemptRted or taken. 

come into use as initial steps in a 
program of development to more 
nearly meet the needs for higher edu- 
cation in this Commonwealth. 

Unavoidable delays have thrown our 
building program behind schedule but 
we shall occupy the most essential 
classroom and dormitory buildings by 
the end of the semester. In the mean- 
time we shall be crowded in dormi- 
tories and in some of the classrooms. 
With a little patience and tolerance 
and understanding we shall work our 
way out of this situation soon. 

It will be easier than usual for you 
to mark time during the first few- 
weeks when concentrated study may 
be difficult at times. You know that 
the easiest way to master any course 
is to start with determination and 
keep up with assignments from the 
first day. This is most important un- 
der the conditions which will prevail 
for several weeks. A slow start may 
make the whole semester drag.

An orientation meeting has been

extracurricular activities.

2. Freshman caps will be worn un- 
til Thanksgiving. If the freshmen 
win the rope pull, they will be per-

last home football game. 

3. Freshmen that have any griev- 


Freshman girls will be greeted this 
fall by an initiation instead of the 
hazing of former years, it was an- 
nounced by the Scrolls this week. The 
emphasis will be on friendliness and 
cooperation, with Adelphia and Iso- 
gon sponsoring an informal dance 
Saturday night at Lewis Hall for 
freshman men and women. 

From Saturday, September 25 to 
Saturday, October 2, the freshman 
girls will wear the customary white 
berets initialed with their class 
numerals and oilcloth bibs on which 
will be inscribed the student's name 
and home town. 

Beginning Monday, the 27th, the 
following rules will go into effect: 

1. Jump numerals on cement side- 

2. On request of any upperclRRi 
man recite a four line jingle contain- 
ing name and home town. 

:{. No using of center walks at 
Stockbridge Hall and the Libe. 

All regulations for this freshman 
initiation will be rigidly enforced, 
according to plans of Scrolls mem- 

The date of the freshman twilight 
serenade will be announced soon. 

Initiation week will be terminated 
by a pond patty and W.A.A. fresh- 
man playday on October 2. 

Hazing in the sense of punishment 
or humiliation of students has been 
discontinued at the University. 

A Note On Education 

the Registrar's office informs us that there are Ul of y>u r re.Mimen 
on campus, and you are all welcome here. 

At first you may be disturbed by the strangeness of a new place, by 
the housing predicament, or by the various techniques involved in initiation. 
Hut later you will begin to ponder the meaning of the education you have 

come here to acquire. 

Then you will probably discover that the primary function of an educa- 
tion la to develop the individual more completely as a human being. It con- 
sists of information gathered, organized into knowledge, and built toward 


This means that education becomes a challenge for the one who seeks 
it. It is achieved only after a struggle for discipline and self mastery which 
is often intense and lonely. But it is only by going in this direction that the 
individual can hope to arrive at any measure of happiness. 

At the same time as you begin your study in college, you are aware 
that our particular civilization is threatened. It it is to be saved, it must 
be saved ultimately by those who have experienced higher education. But 
only the educated who have labored for wisdom can save it. This is our 
very real problem and now it becomes your problem as well. 

The challenge which you must accept and os jR W o m s if you are to achieve 
personal fulfillment widens into a responsibility to the society in which you 
strive for this fulfillment. For the lines of our own development, and the 
lines of the survival of our kind of culture are drawn taut, and run along 
together. •

As Head Of U Of M Military Department 

Colonel William Xeeley Todd, Jr., 
has replaced Colonel Richard B. Kvans 

as professor of military science and 
tactics of the Reserve Officers train- 
ing program at the U of M, Dr. Ralph 
A. Van Meter disclosed this week. 

Col. Todd, a cavalry officer, will

all clothes will be worn backwards. 

8. Activities shall officially end 
with the cessation of classes each 
day (•"> p.m.). No caps need be worn 
after that time. 

Grin And Bear It 

Many of us who returned to the campus this fall found the place changed 
almost beyond recognition in several places. Beds in the cage, in Mem Hall — 
what next? Cafeterias overflowing, unexpectedly added room-mates — all 
these have contributed to a sense that we are perhaps growing too fast for 

By comparison with many other institutions, however, we are merely go- 
ing through a phase which they had to cope with more than a year ago. Then 
they were housing their students in gymnasiums, dormitory recreation rooms, 
and every other available nook and cranny. Now we have reached that stage 
in our growth where we are forced temporarily to do the same. 

This condition is one which has come about through a combination of 
lack of time and building materials. As a state university we are committed 

to furnish low-cost higher education to the students of the commonwealth Utruction which is causing the current

"It looks like Middlesex will be

said, "but the building is not suffi- 
ciently completed now for an accurate 
prediction. The weather, for example, 
may or may not be favorable."

Bradford Supports Our 
Engineering Expansion 

We want to see the University of 
Massachusetts grow, especially in the 
engineering departments", Governor 
Robert V. Bradford declared in an 
exclusive interview with a Collegian 
reporter last week. 

Commenting on the need for con- 
tinued state financial aid to the Uni- 
versity! Governor Bradford stated 
that he would "follow the recom- 

ndations of the president and the 

board of trusties in regard to those 
facilities most needed by the Uni- 

The governor declared that the Fort 

Devei s extension would be kept open 

"short of war" until all veteran 

. dents there had been absorbed 

er at the Amherst campus or in 

. r universities. 

No Agreement On 'State Of Campus'; 
Housing And Coed Shortage Looms 

It's time to do the make-believe a date without a car. You can, how- 

with the books again, boys aid girls, ever, make out application blanks, 

So lay the cuesticks down, throw the and file them with the Registrar if 

dice away and gather round. you want to get at least one date, 

At the moment there seems to be awful blind, sometime before Christ- 
considerable confusion as to the mas. 

merits of the new school year. Every- 
one agrees that things are not as 
bad as thty seem, but everyone dis- 
agrees as to whether they are better 
or worse. 
or worse. 

New Cafeteria System 
Utilizes Coupon Books 

Completely revising the system pre- 
viously used in the boarding halls. 
the U of M will this year inaugurate 
B coupon book service in the three 
dining halls on campus. 

By this new setup the ,-tudei t will 
pay for those meals he eats. 
'xhm as in the case of the seven day 
tickets used last year, the stu- 
had to pay for a full week 
whether he took all his meals at the 
arding ball or not. 
Those living in Butterfield House 
take all meals at the Butterfield 
eteria. Students living at Chad- 
boun e or Greenough will eat at the 
Greenough Cafeteria All other stu- 
•- will eat at Draper Hall or 
Draper Annex. 

Each hall will have a different color 

,,,i book, and these hooks cannot 

i., used at any hall other than the 

m for which they were issued. The 

k- are available at the treasurer's 

ffice or at the dinig halls during the 

meal. Each book contains cou- 

- for fourteen breakfast meals. 

teer luncheon meals and fourteen 

per meals. The cashier will re- 

. the coupons as the book is 

presented at the end of the cafetria 

. The coupons will be good for the 

llegi year. 

Tile University will also operate a 
snack bar and soda fountain located 
i Draper Hall. The snack bar will

day. The hour.- the snack bar will I 
■ use are as follows: 
&:30 to 11 :on. 1:80 to 6:00 and 7:30 
m 10:30. 

Housing Brings (tripes 

There is, for example, this matter 
of housing. Some met. are griping he- 
cause they are either stacked neatly 
four to a room or hung like pictures 
along the walls of the cage. Others 
however ( are happy because plans for 
bunking them OK raft< rs in the 
middle of the pond have been tern 
porarily halted. A few are still be- 
wildered because they hold room as- 
signment.-, dated from last spring, in 
an hi finished dorm with little more 
than a roof of air and skies of blue. 

Devens transfers, with an eye for 
women, will be happy to learn that 
there an 1 . r >74 live human females 
sprawling around campus in various 
attitudes. Bttt at the same time there 
are '20R4 men students. 

As usual manly freshmen will ap 
proach the ttnpleasantries <>f "indoc- 
trination" with extreme distaste. They 
should tot, however, tremblo too 
violently in anticipation. Despite the 
ugly rumors, it is simply not true 
that victims of last year's hazing are 
still jammed deep into the mud at the 
bottom of the College Pond. We haw 
learned that intensive dredging opera- 
tions, carried on this summer, have 
already corrected this situation. 

Ree Facilities Crowded 

The ui. usually large eiuollnie nt will 
increase the pressure on our over- 
crowded n creational facilities. Most 
students will continue to get their 
. •ritertamment at such local palaces 
..f pleasure as Barselotti's and Gran- 
dy's, and in the numerous beer gar- 
dens strewn along the road between 
here and Northampton.

Scientist Van Meter Is 
l.{th President 

(This la the first of I series of 
features on Who's Who on the facul- 

Back in 1013 a ganguhf ('"• feet - 
inches) l'.l-year-old student ran a one- 
man delivery service for a laundry to 
earn some of his way as a freshman 
at Ohio State University. Today at 
:">4, he is Dr. Ralph Albert Van Meter, 
l.'Uh president of the University of 
Massachusetts. Formal inauguration 
will be held October 10. 

"Men who know him best," report* 
a Huston Globe article of last May '.», 
"say he's a natural leader, genuinely 
democratic, wholly without frills, 
liked by all ages of nun and women." 
These personal qualities, plus his 
demonstrated skill as an administra- 
tor, he was acting president for a 
year largely explain why the trus- 
tees unanimously selected him as 
president after canvassing, as Chair- 
man Bartlett reported, "the names 
of at least BO possible men". 

Upon graduating from Ohio State 
in l'.MT, the future head of the U of M 
came to Amherst as an instructor in 
food conservation at what was then 
called Massachusetts Agricultural 
College. Here he met Miss Kudora 
Tuttle, of Baetport, \. V., a Cornell 
graduate, who was teaching home 
economies. In l'.US, while he was in 
the Army, they were married, and 
after his discharge he came out of 
service as a first sergeant with know- 
ledge of the Atgoiuie and St. Mihiel 
they settled in Amherst. 

An excellent scientist, he was made 
professor of pomology In lO'i.'t. Sub 
sequently he Required a Bh.D. in horti- 
•ulture at Cornell. In 1i>.'i2 he began 
his administrative career as dean of 
the school of horticulture, Associates 
say he look- for evidence before draw 

ing conclusions, and he soon became 

known as one ,.f the ablest educators 

on campus. During the war he had 

charge of the army training program 


The Van Meters have four children: 
Marcia, the youngest, who was gradu- 
ated from here in June; David, the 
eldest, now teaching engineering at 
Pennsylvania State College; Helen, a 
music teacher in a Connecticut high 
school; and James, who has been do- 

ing postgraduate work in engineering 

an M.i.T. 

Hiking is the President's favorite 
bobbj'j the Whit- Mountains, the 
Green Mountains, and the Adiron- 
dacks, being his favorite stamping 
grounds. He belongs to the faculty 
hiking club known as the Metta- 
wampls, named for an Indian chief 
who inhabited our valley, according 
to reports unverified by the Collegian. 

The Mettawainpis have a song of 
many verses, one of which concerns 
the President, and goes like this: 

here's to Ralph Van 
BR] the view is tine

highjumped 5 ft. 2 In . ws* a baiting practice pitcher, and rode ■ bike to

sophomore year became tne youngest sports editor tlie paper ever had. Soon 
after school ended last June, a mysterious brain ailment paralysed one side 
of his body, Last month he lost eoiiseiousness. Scores of cards were sent him

The ceiling's unlimited! Men who enter the 
Air Force as Aviation Cadets become 2nd 
Lieutenants within a year. From there on, they 
can climb as far and as fast as their ability and 
the needs of the service permit. Under the Air 
Force expansion program, there is plenty of 
room for advancement. 2nd Lieutenants auto- 
matically become 1st Lieutenants after three 
years of service; are eligible to become Cap- 
tains, Majors and Lieutenant Colonels after 7, 
14 and 21 years respectively. More rapid pro- 
motions are frequent. Never before has the 
opportunity for making the Air Force a perma- 
nent career been so favorable, especially to 
the men in Aviation Cadet Pilot Training. 


Here are the requirementmz 

Appointment to the Aviation Cadets is open to single men, between 
20 and 26'/2 years old, who have completed two years of college 
(or can pass an equivalent examination). Upon graduation, Cadets 
receive their wings and commission, a $250 uniform allowance, 
and three-year active duty assignment with pay up to $336 a 
month. Get full details at any Air Force Base or at any U. S. Army

Schabas To Direct 
UM Marching Band 

The University of Massachusetts 
band will appear at the football rally 
tonight under a new director, Kyra 
Schabas. Mr. Schabas, an alumnus of 
the Julliard School of Music, did 
graduate work at Columbia Univer- 
sity and New York University. 

In New York City, when he was 
released from the Army after three 
years as a member of an Army Air 
Force band in Europe, he played with 
several New York City symphony or- 
chestras and jazz bands. Last year 
he taught music at the Hackley 
School for boys in Tarrytown, N. Y. 

Plans for More l T of M Bandwork 

Although his future plans are in- 
complete, Mr. Schabas is planning 
to have an all male marching band 
of selected musicians this year. There 
is, he added, a distinct possibility that 
this military band will work under a 
joint arrangement between the Uni- 
versity and the Army, whereby mem- 
bers of the band will spend their mili- 
tary periods rehearsing with the band.

After the football season is over, 
Mr. Schabas has made plans both for 
a concert band to be composed of men 
and women, and a college dance band 
of at least fifteen pieces. 

Besides his work as a director of 
the band, Mr. Schabas will teach 
theory, harmony, and music. He has

More than 1,000 cheering students 
crowded into Bowker Auditorium in 
a pre-football rally to send the Red- 
men to their victory over Bates. 

Sponsored jointly by Adelphia and 
Isogon, the rally was preceded by a 
parade down North Pleasant Street 
and across the campus to Stockbridge 
Hall. An ROTC armored car with 
siren screaming led the marching 
throng, which included the band, the 
girl's drill team and students. Giant 
signs called for a grid victory. 

After a burst of lively music by the 
band under Ezra Schabas, Wally Kal- 
laugher opened the rally with a pep 
talk. Songs and cheers directed by the 
cheer leaders followed. Throughout j The edge was taken off the recent U of M victory over Bates

Athletes: A Tribute 

The injury of Don Costetto in last week's football game points 
up a very compelling reason for whole-hearted support ol athletics 

bv stiulents and faculty alike. While injuries of such serious na- 
ture are not numerous, the chance for them does exist. 

Anv T of M athlete who is willing to give up his time tor 
meling practice Bewions and enter a game with the full knowl- 
edge that it may be the last of his career can take small satistac- 
tion in a job well done unless the hard road he chooses is made as 
Mnooth as possible. The recent Dean's office directive providing tor 
makeup of work missed by athletes is a commendable move which 
should provide more incentive for all our athletes. 

The other half of the story, however, lies m the enthusiastic 
support Of our team by the student body. Last Friday's rally. 
largest and the most inspiring one in over live years, showed that 
the student body is solidly behind our teams. If such student 
spirit, and administration continues, we may look forward to 
brighter athletic prospects than ever before. 

" We wish to pay tribute to Don Costetto and the other players 
who were injured in last Saturday*! game. It is the hope of all 
that this mav in some way recompense them for the sacrifices 
they made in order to uphold and advance the athletic traditions 
of the U <>t* M.

A prune example of Collegian in-

that you condone the childish emula-

or haven't you bothered reading them 
in your own paper?

Drive Safely 

The human body is. after all. a rather fragile thing, easily 

itroyed. Often it does not lie within our power to avoid the 

agent of this destruction. Remembering this, an English writer 

wisely said that he was indebted to each man he met because he 

did not kill him. 

This observation seems especially significant at this time 
when cur campus is crowded with pedestrians. The student driver 
has a greater opportunity now than he has ever had to maim or 
spare his fellows. It is a very simple matter to drive recklessly. 
and BO endanger the lives of others. But it is scarcely more difficult 
to acquire patience, to drive slowly and carefully in order that 
those who must walk may walk in safety, and continue to live. 

The time of greatest danger occurs, as usual, just before eight 
in the morning and at noon. The place of greatest danger is the 
intersection by the blinker light near Phi Sig. But only by careful 
driving at all times and in all parts of the campus can we be as- 
sured of a really safe year. Certainly the pedestrian should obey 
the rules and watch where he goes. But the major share of the 
responsibility must lie with the driver. 

He should remind himself that it is not very easy, and it is 
always too late to apologize to a dead man or a crippled one.

broke into radio as regular giest or 
tin- famous "Tattler" program, a

He joined The Rangers, a profes- 
sional quartet comprising such now- 
famous stars as Eugene Connelly an i 
John Herrick. Finally Doric made 
the chorus of the New York Metro- 
politan for performances of the opera 

It was then that Doric decided h 
drop the whole idea of profeaaional 
success, and to enter Boaton Univer- 
sity to fashion out a career as a mu- 
sic educator.

he loves, but never has time to do: 
play tennis, take in all the musicals 
on Broadway, spend an evening at 
the "Monta Rosa, or dine at "The 
Swedish Rathskellar" in New York 

His "way of life" would exhaust 
two ordinary men, but he takes it in 
stride. And he lives it with a philoso- 
phy: that all art, culture and music 
should be stripped of it's superfci- 
alities; shorn of its "cultists": and

day culminating an HO yard advance 
in the second quarter with a 57 yard

On the cooler side prospects for a 
hot hockey team have considerably 
j increased in past days. Last year's 
rather latent pucksters are still here:

Added that impressive list which

deserving team are recent newcomers,

Burke, Ellis, Toohey, Galusha, Mc- 
ManUS, Kelly, Joyce, Roche, Sweeney 
and McLaughlin (Devens co-captain 
elect). All in all the future looks very- 
bright indeed for a fine season of 
i those cool weather sports. Of course 
competition is still open to all comers, 
regardless of the number of men al- 
ready known to be interested. 

As an added inducement, it might 
be added here, an Administrative 
spokesman just informed the Col- 
legian that "when students are absent 
from class as members of an athletic 
team — they should not be marked 
zero for work missed. An opportun- 
ity to make up such assignments 
(missed) should be given." Well, 
that's the future as it looks now.

of registration behind them, attend- 
ed the frosh picnic held in the ca^e 
last Thursday. The picnic, sponsored 
by the Senate, United Religious 
Council, WSGA and WAA nave the 
newcomers a chance to get better ac- 
quainted with their classmate.-. 

Opening the festivities with a pic- 
nic lunch consisting of sandwiches, 
milk, apples and ice cream, the fresh-

ular and square dancing that followed. 
Wally Kallaugher MC'd the mass 
meeting immediately after the feed. 

Several of the committee members 
noticed a very evident lack of Inter- 
mingling in the earlier pari of the 
evening, as the men and women in 
general remained with groupa con- 
sisting of their respective sexes. As 
the evening progressed the segn

The committee for the picnic was 
made up of the following; 

Representatives for Waa: Nancy

A Stripper With A Heart 

Miss Andre did not say anything 
about her own personal life, but the 
manager of the theater later gave out 
a story that could have been taken 
from any dime novel. This story was 
verified, however. 

"<>n one of her road trips," related 
Mr. Pearlstein, "Rene ran acroi i 
woman who had had an illegitimate 
child. The little girl was four months 
old at that time, and she was slowly 

Btarving to death because of neglect, 
"Miss Andre received the const i I of 
her husband and adopted the child. 
She then hired a nurse to travel with 
her and look after the child. The girl 
is almost three years old now, and 

neither she nor the nurse have ever 
gone near the theater. 

"1 even know of occasions when 
Rene could only book one room. At 
these times she slept on a sofa some- 
where so that the child could have -a 

Mr. Pearstein pointed out girls that 
had given up years during the svar 
to travel from coast to coast to en- 
tertain servicemen. These girls not 
only didn't net paid, they also had to 
pay a large part of their expenses 

Mr. Pearlstein also spoke at length 
concerning the great stars of today 
who started on the st.age of burlesque 
theaters. He ended this dissscrtation 
on what burlesque really is. 
Hurlesque Is A Iturlesqiie 

"Burlesque is nothing but a take 
otr. It ridicules everything on the 
legit stage and in the movies; it 
even makes fun of itself. Also, there 

is nothing new in burlesque. All the 
gsgs have been used innumerable 

times. It is just that each comic has 
his own little twist Some of the new- 
hit shows owe their success to the 
acts that have been taken almost 

directly from the burlesque stage. 
"As to what burlesque Is, it is, very 

-imply, ... a burlesque." 

At this point, a somewhat frus- 

trated group left the theater. Most 
of the follows thought that their pre- 
vious impressions, mistaken though 
they were, were a lot more romantic 
than the truth. In fact, it might have

Sigma Kappas Get Campus 'First'; 
Employ Men In New Sorority House 


A year long- housing problem was 

solved recently when thirty girls of 

Sigma Kappa sorority moved Iflfco 
their newly purchased house on AUeB 
Street. An even greater revelation 
was that the Sigmas would be the 
first on campus to employ male bus- 
hoys and dish washers. 

A year ago, when the sorority 
found itself without a house, the girls 
were allowed to take over North 
College as a dormitory-sorority house. 
When a new influx of married veter- 
ans created another problem second 
semester, however, the sorority was 
forced to vacate North College and 
the girls were once again without a 
home. This time they were dispersed

Co-Ed Swimming? 

Dear Editor, 

As part of the group that enjoyed 
the coed swimming program during 
the summer sessions, we would like 
to inform the rest of the student body- 
about it, in the hope that student 
action will be taken to set up a simi- 
lar program for the regular winter 

We are but a few of the students, 
who attended and enjoyed the coed 
swimming periods. There was a regu- 
lar attendance of approximately 40 
students on each of the two nights a 
week it was held, and at all times 
there was a spirit of friendly coopera- 
tion between the students and Mr. 
Briggs of the Phys. Ed. Department, 
who was in charge of the pool 

A variety of experience in the fields 
Of books, brokers and bugles gives 
Robert S. Hopkins, Jr., a solid founda- 
tion on which to rest his duties as 
the U of M's first Dean of Men. Serv- 
ice in the Army in World War II. a 
spell on Wall Street during the thir- 
ties, several years of teaching and 
an assistant deanship at Rutgers Uni- 
versity have given Dean Hopkins the 
necessary know-how needed in this 
important post. 

Native of New Jersey 
Born in Ramsey, New Jersey, 
March i:>th 1913, Dean Hopkin's first 
introduction to the field of higher 
education came at the Manlius School 
in New York. At this institution he 
participated in the cross country 
team's endeavors beside his scholastic 
work, and to quote him, "Cross coun- 
try is rugged work." From Manlius 
his next fling in the scholastic world 

guages and literature and got his 
B.A. degree in 1936. Finding Rutgers 
to his liking, Hopkins accepted a job 
as assistant dean of men and took 
graduate courses in psychology at 
the same time. 

Activities on the "Street" 
In 1936, Mr. Hopkins joined the 
staff of a New York brokerage firm. 
Later he went to work in the stock 
exchange, and still later worked for 
the Standard Statistics Company. 

By the fall of 1938 he had decided 
to re-enter the field of education and 
returned to Manlius as instructor in 
speech, English and Spanish. He also 
acted as assistant professor of mili- 
tary science and tactics at the school. 
During this period he did summer 
work at Syracuse and the Breadloaf 
School of English in Middlebury. It 
was at Breadloaf that he met his 
future wife, Miss Barbara Welles of 

The rules and regulations were few 
and simple and could be complied 
with easily during the winter sessions. 
All students were requested to wear 
their own non-woolen suits, and the 
girls were requested to wear bathing 
caps, since it was understood that in 
order to keep the privilege, that the 
students had been trying to get for 
so long, it would be necessary to 
maintain the pool in good condition. 

Previously, the Senate has tried 
unsuccessfully to obtain permission 
for the kind of program that was 
carried out this summer. It seems to 
M that student action could be taken 
now so that coed swimming would be 
a regular social activity on campus.

Budget Mirrors Our Needs 

Another record budget takes its 
first step this week toward the Legis- 
lature. Once again it seems to mirror 
intelligently the basic **&*»* *« 
our rapidly expanding University. One 
of the appropriations requested will 
go to the construction of a new din- 
ing hall to help satisfy the physical 
needs of the students; another is for 
the library, which must be ^ lar ff <1 
if it is to sustain, to any extent, the 
intellectual life of the campus 

Looking beyond our immediate 
wants, which are many, to the years 
just ahead, we realize that the direc- 
tion of our growth is not down but 
upward. For the emphasis today is 
upon higher education. It is recognized 
that more young men and women 

must be better educated if we are to 
achieve a dynamic citizenship. 

This means that more high school 
graduates will want to take advant- 
age of the low cost education at the 
State University. And this is only 
a« it should be. But we cannot expect 
to cope with this situation unless our 
facilities are made considerably more 
adequate than they now are. 

In view of these facts it is to be 
I hoped that the Legislature does not 
slash this new budget too wantonly. 
In their haste to pursue the phantom 
of economy they should be careful not 
to weaken that kind of educational 
support upon which our democracy 
will have to make its stand.

From Claiborne he was sent to

much to the dismay of Captain Hop-

Horowitz Finds Argentine Schools 
Purged Of All Democratic Thought 

by Ralph Fishman 

"To put it bluntly, there has been a systematic and ruthless 
elimination of all democratic thought and tendencies within the 
universities in Argentina." These are the conclusions drawn by 
Leonard Horowitz, Globe Memorial Fellowship winner in 1947, who 
travelled through South America this past year, and spent some 
time in Buenos Aires. 

Prof. Learning English 
While Teaching French 

Some cynic has observed that when 
a person is unable to learn he begins 
to teach, but at least one member of 
the faculty is learning English while 
he's teaching French. 

He is Monsieur Gilbert Cestre, 
newly appointed French instructor 
who arrived in this country by air 
nn June 12. 

Since assuming his teaching duties 
here, Mr. Cestre has had an oppor- 
tunity to develop the English which 
he studied in France, and students 
find that he is progressing each day 
in his linguistic ability. 

Except for his visits to Switzer- 
land and Belgium, the new French 
instructor spent the greater part of 
his life in his native Dijon, the 
world's famous cooking center. There 
he attended the primary school, the 
lucee, corresponding to our high 
school, and the University of Dijon, 
where he obtained his license. 

Mr. Cestre has a keen interest in 
classical music and enjoys playing 
the piano. Other hobbies have been 
nil for him in the past few years be- 
cause of the invasion by the Ger- 
mans in 1940, which left him little 
time and desire for outer interests. 

America is a very pleasing coun- 
try to Mr. Cestre, who is impressed 
by the American way of dress and 
the food. He is very much interested 
in American students and finds them 
extremely cooperative and under- 

Through the efforts of Dr. Fraker 
Mr. and Mrs. Cestre resided at the 
Thi Omega sorority house during the 
summer. At present they are living 
m Belchertown. 

Student Life Rules On 
Off-Campus Dance Site 

Student at Buenos Aires 

Leonard enrolled in the University 
of Buenos Aires, and had an oppor- 
tunity to observe first hand the edu- 
cational system under Peron. The stu- 
dents and professors of the Univer- 
sity had formed the core of the demo- 
cratic opposition to the Fascist party. 
When Peron rose to power in 1946 
all the pro-democratic professors were 
fired. In sympathy, 2000 professors 
all over the country resigned their 

Butchers, plumbers, mechanics — all 
staunch Peronistas — are now the pro- 
fessors in the University, most of 
them have no other degree but that 
recently bestowed upon them by the 
Peron Government. There can be no 
doubt that, in Leonard's words, "the 
entire educational system in Argen- 
tina has been redesigned as a medi- 
um of totalitarian indoctrination." 

Enters Journalism Field 

Leonard left school and entered the 
field of journalism, feeling that he 
could learn much more about the 
country in that way, and for a time 
he was assistant to Milton Bracker 
of the New York Times. Later he 
toured Patagonia, through the Straits 
of Magellan, up the West coast to 
Peru, and then back again through 
Bolivia to Argentina where he worked 
for the United Press for 5 months. 
He is now back at the U of M to fin- 
ish up his studies, and plans to re- 
turn to Argentina. 

Horowitz had the opportunity to 
know the Argentine people intimately 
— their love of good beef, siestas, — 
and their appreciation of the arts 
and letters. "At present", said Leon- 
ard, "Peron has suppressed the people 
and iR using emigrant Nazis from 
Hitler's Germany in his administra- 
tion. But Argentina will come back, 
for the people have a great democra- 
tic tradition." 

The Winter Carnival Ball will be 
the one major U of M dance which 
will be held on the campus of Am- 
herst College this year, Prof. Vernon 
P. Helming, chairman of the Student 
Life Committee announced this week. 

No one is to go directly to Amherst 
College to arrange for use of their 
facilities, Mr. Helming said, because 
this matter is handled by agreement 
between President Charles W. Cole 
of Amherst and President Ralph A. 
Van Meter. 

Under the present arrangement, one 
major U of M dance will be given 
use of Amherst College facilities each 
year. Last year the Military Ball was 
held in the Amherst gymnasium. 

"University of Massachusetts stu- 
dents and faculty appreciate the 
generosity of our neighboring college 
in donating the use of their large 
dance floors," Mr. Helming stated. 

Major formal dances are often held 
off campus because of the lack of a 
floor large enough for an all-Univer- 
sity dance on this campus. 

As Sixty Frosh Move In 

Memorial Hall became a dormitory 
this week with the arrival of tilt 
Stoikbridge freshmen who will be 
temporarily billeted upstairs in the 

Herbert A. Randolph, housing direc- 
tor, announced this week that while 
no set regulations for the use of the 
building by students would be pub- 
lished, all are asked to cooperate in 
making things easier for its new in- 

The rest rooms will be switched, 
with the one on the first floor now 
reserved for women and the upstairs 
room for men. The commuters' 
lounge in the basement will continue 
to be used. 

Mr. Randolph expressed the hope 
that the men would be out of their 
temporary quarter; by November 
first, but declined to set a definite 

Students entering the building dur- 
ing the late evening hours are re- 
quested to use the south door, al- 
though the west entrance will not be 

"We will not prohibit the other 
students from using the lounge," Mr. 
Randolph concluded, "but we hope 
they will be as quiet as possible, 
since those living in Mem Hall must 
use it for a study room." 

'Les Folies 
Is Coming 

Three Appointments To 
Business Adm. Faculty 

Three new appointments in the 
school of business administration were 
announced this week by President 
Ralph A. Van Meter. 

Milo Kimball, author of three col- 
lege textbooks on corporation finance, 
has been named associate professor 
of business administration. He was 
educated at Ohio Northern and holds 
the M.B.A. degree from Boston Uni- 

Gordon Donald, a native of Cam- 
bridge, Mass., was appointed assistant 
professor of business administration. 
He is a graduate of Princeton and 
holds the M.A. from the University of 
Chicago. He formerly taught indus- 
trial relations at "Northeastern Uni- 

Robert L. Rivers, a graduate of 
Clark University with a master's 
degree from the University of Illinois, 
has been named instructor of business 
administration. He is a native of 
Worcester, Mass. 

"If you heard strange signals on 
your radio last Monday, don't worry- 
it was just the test transmitter for 
the new campus radio station WMUA 
(Massachusetts University at Am- 
herst), giving indication of coverage," 
said Wayne Langill, Station Director, 
in a recent interview. 

Transmitter Site Bring Selected 

Professor W. W. Smith of the engi- 
neering department and engineering 
student Jay Doane were at their two 
way mobile radio units equipped to 
pick up the signal and to report back 
to another unit at the transmitter in 
South College the strength of the Sig- 
nal at various points on and adjacent 
to the campus. This will help select a 
suitable spot for the new transmitter 
which it is hoped will be ready in 
from thirty to thirty-five days. 

The organizational meeting on 
September M was devoted to a <li>- 
cussion of aims and purposes. The 
following appointments were made: 
Station Director-Wayne Langill, As- 
sistant Station Director — Ken 
Spaulding, Public Relations Director 
— Dave Meltzer, Production Director 
— Ed Young, and Technical Director 
—Bob Bates. 

The management of the station was 
broken up into two main departments- 
production, under Kd Young, and tech- 
nical, under Bob Bates. It is planned 
to have regular monthly general 
meetings of all departments, with 
weekly meetings of the section head". 

Women Wanted 

Dave Meltzer, Public Relations Di- 
rector added, "Frosh and Sophomores, 
especially girls, since they are in the 
minority, are urged to meet with us 
if they are interested in any feature 
of radio work. 

"The station will be located at Bo. 
College, fifth floor as it was last year. 
We hope to tie up with neighboring 
stations around Amherst for football 
games within the near future. 

"Come one, come all, if you sing. 
dance, act, or would just like to get 
into radio work, contact on*- of the 
above-mentioned staff members and 
well try to find a spot for you. Let's

Norwich Upsets Eckmen 
27-19 In See-Saw Tilt 

W. P. I. Next 

by Joe St eed 

An outplayed but alert Norwich 
team, cashing i" '»> tl "' , ' < ' mteuee, 
took the measure of a favored U of M 
eleven 27-19, last Saturday. Although 
unable to bring the ball past the 
Redman's thirty yard line, Norwich 
was able t.» take advantage of the 
breaki In this teeaaw battle and <>ut- 
Kore the battering Eckmen. 

Tommy Eek's Gridaters will meet 
the eleven of Worceater Polyteeh this 
coming Saturday in a grid battle 
scheduled to start at 2KK) p.m. at 
Alumni Field. Status of the football 

team member* injured during the font 
game of the season with Bates wm 

not known at publication time. This 
game will be the last at home until 
the 30th of October when the Redmen 
meet Vermont here. Intermediate 
game* will b« at Rhode Island and 

Fort Devena, t 

With Hal Fienman doing the lions 
share of toting, the Redmen repeated- 

ly crashed through the Norwich line 
for s./.abie gain* The score give* 
little indication as to the type of 
game, for the visitors had possession 
,,f the ball during most of the battle. 
Two fumbles and a stolen ball set up 
three Norwich scores. 

Penalty Aids T. D. 
The game had hardly opened when 
the Redmen, aided by a fifteen yard 
clipping penalty, traveled seventy 
vards in four plays t«» paydirt. Gilman 
climaxed this drive by dashing fifteen 
vards off the right side of the line 
before being knocked out of bounds 
on the four. Fienman crashed over on 
Norwich the next play. Norwich came 
right hack and after intercepting a 
pass on the Redmen 86, Malley 
tossed a pass into the end zone to tie 
the score. 

Taking over on their own fifteen 
after the ensuing kickoff, the Redmen 
started another long drive with Fien- 
man and Gilman taking turns smash- 
ing through the Norwich line. A twen- 
ty-five yard dash by Fienman aided by 
a fine downfield block by Desautels, 
brought the ball deep into Norwich 
territory, but the drive was halted 
on the four. Norwich kicked out, and 
the Eckmen came roaring back with 
Gilman bulling past the secondary 
into the end zone to break the tie. 
The attempted point after was wide. 
Psalifis Scores 
Then late in the second period came 
the weird play of the game. Dubois 
picked up ten yards through center 
of the Norwich line, but when the 
secondary ganged up on him, Psalifis 
stole the ball and romped 55 yards 
past 21 dumbfounded players for the 
score. Janiak kicked the extra point 
and Norwich left the field at half 
time with a one point margin. 

A determined Redmen eleven came 
out for the third period with Ander- 
son and Fienman alternating through 
the holes opened by the maroon and 
white linemen. The Eckmen drove 
down to the Norwich ten and Fien- 
man bootlegged over from there to 

'Little Indians' Prep 
For A.LC. Encounter 

lied Ball'i Little Indians, preparing 

for their opening encounter of the 
grid season with A.I.C. on October 
twenty-one, will have their fill of 
scrimmages this week. By the end of 
next week Coach Hall expects to be 
able to line up a first and second 


A Rood primary is in the offing 
with fine material at all positions. 
Heading the candidates at end are 
Melrose Jackie l'yne and diet Corkum 
of Stoneham. These lads will be hard- 
pressed by Mike (iarvey, a local hoy, 

and Hill Prevey, formerly of Freiburg 

Academy. Another good prospect is 
Tony Galai who hails from Fast 
Whit Crawford seems certain to 

land one of the tackle slots. Fighting 
for the other positions are Callahan, 
Allentuck, and llcGraw, who was with 
the varsity during the '46 season. 

A pair of Mobs, Crosby from Head- 
ing and Clapp from Deerfield, rate 
high at guard. Dick Waite, a product 
of West Springfield High, and Cal 
Farnsworth are other likely looking 
boys. At center Al Speak of Saugus 
has the inside track at the moment 
but Ceorgie Stephens and Art Mintz, 
the former from Agawam and the lat- 
ter Boston English (this writer's Al- 
ma Mater) could easily snare the 
starting job. 

In the backfield there is talent 
galore. Almost a certain starter is 
Bruce Levis, a fast runner and tricky- 
left-handed passer from Belmont. For 
speed there is Benoit, power Baker, 
and crafty spinner Dicenzo. White, 
Rowell and Jones rate high at block- 
ing back with Rowell a possible start- 
er at fullback. Dournet and Bowler 
have the inside track on the others. 

Coach Ball has used the early days 
of the week to stress defense and has 
employed offense on the other after- 

give the Redmen a temporary lead 

Twenty Yard Pass 

A fumble on the twenty yard line 
set up the third Norwich score, as an 
alert lineman pounced on it. Then, 
since they failed to gain an inch on 
three running plays, Norwich took to 
the air and scored on a twenty yard 
pass with Janiak again kicking the 
point. Undismayed, the Redmen took 
over on their own forty-five after a 
fine runback by Jim Gagnon who had 
played a whale of a game backing up 
the line. Racing the clock, the stub- 
born Eckmen battered through and 
over the Norwich line down to the 
defenders' five where the attack 
petered out. The Norwich line braced 
for three downs and Anderson at- 
tempted a field goal but it was wide. 
There still was hope when Norwich 
was forced to kick, but the punt was 
fumbled and Norwich recovered at 
midfield. Then on third down, Daman, 
with a host of blockers before him, 
raced fifty yards for the final tally. 

Looking Things Over 

by Rush Broude 

The ( >nce Over Lightly: for those 
who questioned the existence of a 
hockey schedule, here i.- a tentative 
list of what is now it; the offing. 
Schedule starts on the 1th of Janu- 
ary with a game still pending, and 
will be followed by contests with 
Williams, Union, Northeastern (H), 
New Hampshire (A), Norwich, North- 
cistern (A), New Hampshire (H) and 
with Middlebury ending the season 
on February 16. 

Practice is scheduled to start some- 
time after the short Thanksgiving 
vacation, around the 1st of December. 
Current rumor has it, however, that 
many of those expected to play will 
have gotten in a lot of personal prac- 
tice by that date. 

Practice for the present tentative 
Hi game basketball calendar, which 
is not particularly easy, but still will 
not he as rough as the Chadbourne 
Hill, is expected to begin about the 
middle of November, but individual 
players are even now taking time out 
o warm their arms and sharpen 
their eyes. 

Among new additions to the foot- 
ball 2nd siring is end Buzz Harring- 
ton, who was upped after the Injuries 
which beset the team after the first 

Final completion of the hockey- 
rink at the foot of the Chadbourne- 
Creenough hill hinges on when the 
lights are installed. But then one of 
the big problems when the 'ice sea- 
son' sets in will require the absolutely- 
necessary cooperation of the student 
body in keeping off the ice (except 
at specified times) so that the ice 
will be in good condition and practice 
will not be hampered. 

There has been a suggestion by- 
many here on the campus interested 
in the coming hockey season that if 
at all possible the Athletic Depart- 
ment try to arrange a game with the 
Fort Devens team. From this end it 
looks possible, at least we see no 
drawbacks. What say, Mr. H? 

On the question of schedules, a 
group interested in forming a golf 
team later in the coming year is 
thinking ahead and wants to know if 
a schedule could be arranged with 
other colleges and universities near 
andor far. Of course, the golfing 
season is still quite a way off, but it 
does take time to arrange a sched- 
ule. It's worth thinking about. 

It looks like a great many of the 
former Devens men, and quite a few- 
others are planning to hit the road 
to the old Fort for the football game 
on the 23rd. I'd like to suggest that 
all those who have cars please give a 
lift to some of the many who are al- 
ready planning to use the "ruie of 
the thumb". We expect to have more 
information on that game next weaK, 
and if so, it will be forthcoming.

Greenmen Triumph 
Booters Edged 2-0 

by Bob Tetrault 

Although completely outplaying the 
speedy Dartmouth booters for two 
periods, the Massachusetts soccer 
squad weakened in the third period 
and the aggressive Dartmouth forces 
managed to score their first tally 
during a scramble in front of the 
Kedmen's goal. 

From the opening whistle to the 
first-half mark it looked like the 
Briggs Booters had the power to 
topple the annually potent Dartmouth 
team. The Redmen kept the ball in 
enemy territory almost constantly in 
the first quarter, and on several oc- 
casions they narrowly missed what 
seemed like inevitable goals. 

The offensive changed hands with 
the beginning of the third quarter 
and the physically tiring Bay Staters 
were forced to defend against the 
hard-hitting Dartmouth team, who 
managed to score a goal early in the 
third canto and another marker in 
the last quarter. 

Fullback Jack Holt and Goally Ed 
McGrath were outstanding on defense, 
turning back Dartmouth threats time 
and again. Halfback Dick Howland, 
center forward "Red" Winton, and 
wing Ralph Garew were the spark- 
plugs of the Massachusetts offensive 
although all the Briggs Booters 
turned in a most commendable after- 
noon of play.

looked good in his first varsity meet, 
placing fourth. 

The spectators were presented with 
a wonderful finish. With less than one 
hundred yards to go, Clough pulled 
out his reserve speed and gradually- 
caught up to and passed Kenyon of 
'Northeastern at the finish line. 
"Whitie" Cossar had a similar race 
to beat out Simon of Northeastern 
for sixth place. 

There were rumors of some dispute 
over the harrier who finished seventh, 
but there seems to be nothing to 
substantiate any long drawn out dis- 
agreement. The method of scoring 
used was claimed to be indistinct in 
clearly identifying the runner, but 
nevertheless the final tally is in, and 
no one seems to contest the results. 

Northeastern was surprisingly- 
stronger than last year, placing men 
2nd, .3rd, oth, 7th, and 10th. 

Clough's time was 20 minutes and

It sounded like suite 18 in Z bar- 
racks of Commonwealth was in for 
another year of verbal dissertations. 
| I also reached for another can of beer. 

"It began with women," Ozzie con- 
tinued authoritatively. 

"Women, leisure and beer. An ex- 
cellent combination," I said. 

"Women," Ozzie declared, "were the 

first forms of private property — 

trophies of war — and with them came 

j the beginning of the leisure class." 


Newman Club To Greet 
Federation Delegates 

The University of Massachusetts

from .'{ to 5 p.m. in Bowker Audi-

from all New England colleges hav- 
ing Newman Club chapters will com- 
' bine with the entire University chap- 
1 ter to make a total of 500 attending 
i the convention. 

At least ten chaplains of various 

] college chapters are expected to be 

present at the meeting which will be 

; the first of the Federation to be held 

>n this campus. The chaplains will be 

headed by Reverend Father Fisher, 

the New England chaplain of the 


Guest speaker of the day will be 
Reverend Father Pierce, professor of 
('a'h.lic Philosophy at Our Lady of 
the Elms College in Chicopee. Wally 
Ka'iaugher, president of the local 
chapter, is in charge of the arrange- 
ts, and he is being aided by a 
committee including Betty Jane Ska- 
hill, Allene Smith, Connie, 
Hill Casey, Jack Dunn, and Frank 

After the business meeting, re- 
freshments will be served to the dele- 
gates in Stockbridge Hall. 

Why this should be I do not know, 
but presumably the early-day capi- 
talist put his trophies to work. 

"As man became more civilized, he 
invented money, which could not only 
attract women, but a lot of other 
things besides," the expositor ex- 

"So now people figure out ways to 
accumulate more sheckles to spend 
on blondes, convertibles and whis- 
key," he said. 

"A sure sign of progress." 

"Hut that isn't all," Ozzie added 
just when I was about to settle for 
the blonde and the whiskey. "Man is 
not a brute. A man of leisure is in- 
timate with nature, art, athletics and 
literature. Not only does he play the 
ponies, but he also goes to French 
movies and reads good books, like 
Forever Amber." Then Ozzie added 
thoughtfully, "Of course, Thorstein 
wrote his book before television came 
into barrooms." 

"Television in barrooms is indeed a 
boon to the leisure class," I said. 

"Even thieves of leisure are more 
respected than common, hard working 
crooks." Ozzie paused to take a sip 
of beer. "Stone and steel hail the 
memory of John I). Rockefeller, but 
all we hear of poor old John Dillinger 
and his boys is based on abusive ar- 
ticles in detective magazines." 

"For all we know," I chimed in, 
"Dillinger might have become a phi- 
lanthropist in his old age, too." 

"Women's colthes are especially de- 
signed to show off leisure," my 
roommate added. "The more imprac- 
tical they are, the more they are ad- 
mired. The corset, for one thing, is 
devised to cripple womanhood. Fol- 
lowing the new look should conn 

"Finally," said Ozzie, "there is edu- 
cation. Too many people are studying 
impractical courses like engineering 
and chemistry. What we need is more 
philosophers like me to figure out 
the mess we're in." 

"Thorstein Veblen was truly a 
great genius," I responded. "However, 
how do you fit into the leisure class?" 

"Every Friday night I go up to 
G randy's," he replied as he reached 
for number six, "and wind up in such 
condition that I can be nothing else."

UM To Join Colleges 
In New Exchange Deal 

The U of M will join with five 
other New England land-grant col-

by President Albert Jorgensen of the 
University of Connecticut. 

Other cooperating schools are the 
Universities of Maine, New Hamp- 
shire, Vermont, Connecticut, and 
Khode Island State College. 

Dr. Jorgensen said that the pro- 
gram was planned in the interest of 
"regional planning of higher educa- 
tion", and added that "not only would 
such a plan be a saving to the tax- 
payer, but it would result in much 
stronger courses in specialized fields". 

"It is undesirable," he declared, "for

Trailers Aid Married 
Vets Housing Troubles 

by Ruth Camann 

Striving to remedy the problem of 
finding more housing space on an 
already overcrowded campus, the Uni- 
versity Housing Department is erect- 
ing a new trailer camp behind North 

Many veterans have decided that, 
since no homes were offered them by 
the university, they would provide 
their own dwellings. The housing of- 
fice has been swamped with applica- 
tions for trailer sites, but so far 
every applicant has been accommo- 

Since 1947 when there were only 
nine trailers on the campus trailer 
site, the number has increased three- 
fold. Contrary to general opinion, 

these trailers with their numerous ad- 
vantages attract many customers. 

Selecting appropriate names for the 
sites presented no problem to the 
Housing Committee. The camp near 
the poultry plant, which faces the 
west, will be called Westview Park, 
■and the site behind North College 
was designated as Ellis 1'ark. after 
a college figure. 

Although these camps are not 
classed with regular college dormi- 
tories that require housemothers and 
signing in and out, one regulation in 
effect is that wet laundry may not be 
hung in clear view of the main road. 

New Chapter Of S.I.N. 
Established On Campus 

A new organization called the "So- 
ciety of Intercollegiate Noetics, Am- 
herst Chapter" has been formed 
recently on campus. SIN, as the 
club abbreviates its name, has formed 
on campuses throughout the country, 
some of the chapters being reor- 
ganized and some operating in the 
shade of the tree of knowledge. 

Acting President of the Amherst 
Chapter, George A. Peters, Jr., said 
that many Devens students would 
remember the SINner's corner in the 
Mermaid Tavern of the Arabella Club. 
Meetings of the Amherst chapter will 
be informal, and will be held in suit- 
able, places on the campus. Other 
meetings have been arranged with 
nearby colleges to discuss such topics 
as the "Mysticism of Swedenborg", 
and "Sensualism in Modern Society". 

It is also hoped that prominent 
speakers may be brought to the U of 
M under the sponsorship of the club. 
When such arrangements now being 
made are final, the list of speakers 
will be announced. 

The members of SIN have grouped 
themselves together in order "to bet- 
ter voice their individual opinions and 
to secure for themselves the obvious 
benefits derived from the bringing 
together of men and women of the 
highest type who realize their obliga- 
tion as conscientious contributors to 
the improvement of our dvnamic so- 

The only qualification for member- 
ship in this society of free-thinking 
individuals, Peters declared, is a firm 
belief in the right of a person to 
speak for himself. It is the aim of the 
society to "facilitate and promote 
original thought". 

An Executive Council statement in- 
dicated that the name of the Amherst 
Chapter adviser and other temporary 
officers would be announced later this

This amount goes into the state 
treasury and the University does not 
have the use of it. 

Citing an example of the need for 
new facilities, Mr. Erickson said that 
B college library should seat 25 per 
cent of the student body. The present 
building seats 350 by crowding, or 
about ten per cent of the students. 

The $65,000 for reconstruction of 
the cavalry stables will provide 
garage space for R.O.T.C. tanks and 
mechanized equipment, and labora- 
tories, shops and storage facilities. 

Extension of the turbine plant will 
enable the University to produce all 
of its own electricity and save con- 
siderable money, Mr. Erickson stated. 
This had been done until a turbine 
broke down during the war. 

All requests for new buildings must 
be approved by the Massachusetts 
Public Building Commission, which 
makes recommendations to the Legis- 
lature, Mr. Erickson said. The Com- 
mission visited the campus two weeks 
ago to look over University needs, he

Playoff Strain 
Hits UM Campus 

by Ed Young 

He was a short bespectacled fella 
who probably thought Early Wynn 
was a condition. Before today he 
didn't give a rap whether Ted Wil- 
liams was batting .250 or standing 
8th in the batting order. 

Last Monday afternoon, with port- 
able radio in hand and a score on his 
lips for every inquiring fan, he played 
his best role as a baseball enthusiast. 

In the barbershop anyone who 
valued his scalp dared not sit in the 
chair of a certain barber baseball fan 
who is reported to be of the disposi- 
tion to get rattled everytime a long 
ball takes off. 

A 6 ft. 6 in. student was heard 
joking about a cross country runner 
he claimed was jogging through cam- 
pus with a portable radio tied to his 
I belt. 

The campus was electric with ten- 
sion ami buzzing about this first 
playoff in American League history. 
A fella in a first floor office wondered 
why a U. of Mass athletic event 
couldn't someday bring the same re- 

By 8:00 a.m. last Saturday the 27 
players of the Mass. Soccer squad had 
assembled in front of the Phys. Ed. 
building. The bus that would carry 
them to Hanover to play Dartmouth 
would arrive at 8:30 a.m. 

At ten o'clock they were still wait- 
ing. Coach Larry Briggs in the mean- 
time had called the bus company 
twice. At this time of morning he 
was frantic. 

At 10:15 a.m. after more than two 
hours of waiting, a tired and dis- 
gusted soccer squad crowded into 
three small taxis. Four disappointed 
boys could not go. 

Ten years ago this very day, the

Errant Frosh Dunked 
At Donkey Court 

Ten delinquent frosh received penal- 
ties ranging from a dunking in the 
College Pond to selling toothpicks in 
the U-Store at a Senate Donkey Court 
Tuesday evening. 

Accused persons were seated in 
front of a spotlight and subjected to 
a mock third degree by a panel of 
nine Senators seated behind the light. 

"What's your name?" 

"Where are you from?" 

"Why did you violate initiation 

"Do you think you're the only fresh- 
man on this campus who was in a 

After a ten-minute period of fast 
questioning, sentences were announced 
and the guilty ones removed to take 
their medicine. Many were assigned 
to carry the rope across the Colege 
Pond Saturday for the rope pull; 
two were told to dress like Indians 
and pursue another frosh at the foot- 
ball game wearing a Worcester sign; 
five were treated to the "refresher 
treatment" in the pond. 

John Dickmeyer, Senate president, 
declared that all those dunked were 
quickly rushed to a waiting car, 
wrapped in blankets and brought back 
to their dormitories. "To prevent any 
ill effects on the students or alarm 
on the part of those hearing about 
the penalties," Dickmeyer .added.

19, Senate president, John Dick- 
meyer, announced recently.

own class, and no one may sign more 
than one petition, he added. The doc- 
uments may be given to any Senate 
member or left in the Senate mail- 
box in Memorial Hall. 

If more than five people are nomi- 
nated for any class offce, primaries 
will be held between October 20 and 
29. Information on these primaries,

A student guide service, to be

Professor Musgrave of the Office of

Men To Meet Oct. 14 
For Placement Servcie 

"Preparation for the Job Interview 
and the Personal Data Sheet" will be 
the subject of the Placement Coun- 
seling Meeting, according to a state- 
ment made by Guy V. Glatfelter, 
placement officer for men students. 
This meeting will be held Thursday, 
October 14 at 10:00 a.m. in Room D, 
Fernald Hall. 

Economics, business administration, 
and liberal arts senior men, who wish 
to have job interviews on campus and 
elsewhere, are urged to attend. 

II CAN HAPPEN AGAIN— As a matter of fact it will, this Saturday 
after the game with Worcester Tech. These shots of the rope pull last 
>ear show the before and after views, as the freshmen were pulled across

Faculty Asked 
To Chaperon 

Faculty members have again been 
asked to volunteer for chaperone duty 
at mixed social events at the Univer- 
sity, Prof. Vernon P. Helming of the 
Student Life Committee said this 

At least 20 couples will be needed 
for social events each weekend, Prof. 
Helming announced. 

Faculty members who are willing 
to act as chaperones should indicate 
the weekends on which they will not 
be available. They will then be as- 
signed in alphabetical and chronologi- 
cal order. 

Each couple was asked to chaper- 
one two or three times last year. Prof. 
Helming expressed the hope that the 
number of times can be kept as low 
this year. 

The number of social events varies 
considerably from week to week, he 
reported. If chaperones are not asked 
by Friday of the preceding weekend, 
however, they can feel free for the 
evening in question. 

Each chaperone is asked to give 
his response to the affair he attended 
on a form which is kept confidential. 
The record at events last year was 
very good on the whole, Prof. Helm- 
ing said. 

Van Meter 13th Prexy; 
12th Man To Hold Job 

When Ralph A. Van Meter is for- 
mally inaugurated as president of the 
University of Massachusetts, he will 
be the twelfth man to fill the job, but 
the thirteenth president elected. 

The reason for this contradiction 
lies in the fact that Paul Chadbourne, 
after whom Chadbourne Hall is 
named, held the post two separate 
times over a period of 15 years. 

Past presidents of the U of M are 
as follows: 

Henry Flagg French, 1864-6f> 
Paul Ansel Chadbourne, 1866-67 
William S. Clark, 1867-79 
Charles L. Flint, 1879-80 
Levi Stockbridge, 1880-82 
James C. Greenough, 1883-80 
Henry Hill Goodell, 1886-1905

Then And Now 

The Collegian wishes to extend a hearty welcome to all those 
who will appear on our campus Saturday for the inauguration of 
President Van Meter. This ceremony will come as a formal recog- 
nition of the growth and achievement of the U of M in the field 
of education. 

Fifteen years ago next month, when Dr. Hugh P. Baker was 
inaugurated. "Massachusetts State College had a total enrollment 
approximately one-fourth its present size. Since that time we have 
expanded our student body and material facilities to an un- 
dreamed-of degree. We have achieved the status of a University, 
added numerous new schools and departments, and instituted Fort 
Devens to accommodate the large overflow of student registration 
that came with the post-war rush. 

Many important figures in the field of education will be on our 
campus to pay tribute to the University and especially to Dr. Van 
Meter for his contribution to our successful growth. President 
Conant of Harvard, who encouraged and aided the U of II drive 
last year, is a fitting choice for the main speaker. 

To many of us here on campus, the growing pains experienced 
by our rapidly-expanding university might overshadow the pro- 
gress that has been made in the past two years. To those visiting 
the U of M Saturday, however, the striking thing about our school 
will be not the difficulties we are having but the things that have 
been accomplished. 

One of the best ways in which we can help create a good im- 
pression of our university is to turn out in large numbers Satur- 
day morning for the inauguration procession. Although there will 
not be enough seats in Bowker for all students, we can show our 
support of Dr. Van Meter by being there to speed him on his way 
along the line of march. 

Good Traditions Or None 

Last Saturday's rope pull marked a new low in the disorgani- 
zation of the traditional affair which should make people stop and 
ask themselves whether or not the custom is worthwhile. 

The entire conduct of the contest was a farce, with neither 
side knowing exactly what was to occur. No signal was given for 
the start of the contest, nor was there any on-the-spot decision of 
the victory. No ruling was made on the obviously unfair prac- 
M of both sides in their attempts to win the pull by fair means 
or foul. 

To any intelligent observer, it is quite evident that the rope 

pull a.s a par: -.r campus tradition, should either be improved 

shed. In the past it hat been a source of much amusement 

. and if properly run it can continue 
.- . ■ ,f the fall. However, when both fresh-

Bernadotte Plan 

Attacked As Unfair 

Dear Editor: 

We would like to call the attention 
of the students to the present U. N. 
General Assembly meeting in Paris 
and the plan that is being offered as 
a solution to the Palestinian problem. 

The unfortunate assassination of 
Count Bernadotte by the outlawed 
Stern Gang has elevated the late 
count to the position of a martyr, 
and as a result an attempt is being 
made to capitalize upon his death. 
The submission of his final plan, de- 
spite the opposition from both sides, 
if being proposed. 

Among the many injustices in the 
plan is the reduction of the area of 
Israel, from the size of Vermont N> 
the approximate size of Rhode Island. 
The vital area of the Negeb is being 
taken from the State of Israel in ex- 
change for the small area of Galille. 
With it goes the hopes of the weary 
D.P.'f of Europe, for it was in the 
Negeb that these D.P.'s were to make 
their home. 

The student should recognize the 
inhumane aspects of the plan, which 
in fact, carves a caricature of a state 
for Israel, and should be defeated.

However, it seems that in Amherst | hazing is a very immature practice 

there is one age-old tradition that is 
kept year after year, and should have 
been ironed out long ago. That is the 
absurd practice of Hi-Y and Tri-'S 
informal initiation, commonly known 
as "hazing." If ever any custom 
should be done away with, this form 
of ridiculous action is it. 

Of course, this is only one opinion, 
but making people look ridiculous 
and whacking them with inch-thick 
paddles isn't fun, when you think 
about it seriously. The chances are 
that those tormentors who look as 

anyway. So is revenge. Now you say 
that if hazing is immature why do 
they have it in colleges. Well, did you 
ever stop to think that certain college 
institutions can be on the juvenile 
side, too. There is proof of that right 
here in Amherst. No doubt you have 
heard or seen disgusting looking frosh 
wandering around the campuses with 
underwear on the outside and outer- 
wear on the inside, wearing all sorts 
of ridiculous signs, serenading at five 
in the morning, and being thrown in 
ponds. It's surprising that colleges 

though they were having a great didn't drop hazing years ago. We 

time really aren't enjoying themselves 
much more than their victims. 

Last May the Hi-Y voted whether 
to uphold the tradition for at least 
another year, that is, initiate the in- 
coming Class of '49ers. Most seniors 
in the club voted against the measure, 
while all but one junior were opposed. 
The move was defeated, and thus an- 
other chapter was added to this ump- 
teen-year-long vicious circle. The ar- 
guments used by the opposed were 
that "it is fun" and that they had 
to get revenge, pay back a senior by- 
paddling a freshman. 

Hi-Y means High School YMCA. 
YMCA stands for Young Men's 
CHRISTIAN Association. Certainly a 
revenge motive is not in accordance 
with Christian principles. And those 
who said "it was fun" probably said

don't seem to be progressing in men-

It used to be that in the days of the 
revolution a man was grown-up at 
fourteen. Nowadays college gradu- 
ates are just reaching maturity. 

At last reports the Amherst Hi-Y 
was one of the three clubs in Massa- 
chusetts and Connecticut that still 
upholds the sickening tradition of in- 
formal initiation. A few years ago 
the Amherst chapter decided to let 
up a little, with the hope that the 
following year would see more leni- 
ency, and gradually work down to 
nothing. This backfired somehow, and 
the hazing has reached its worst 
stages in the last two trials. It could 
get even worse. So the only way to 
check the situation is to obliterate 
the practice from the premises of 
A.H.S. It's time to grow up.

tified parties drained the pond by 
opening the gate at the north end, 
presumably in the hope this would 
bring cancellation of the event. As a 
result, the respective classes faced 
each other the next afternoon across 
an expanse of rich mud, fifty yards 
uide, which varied in depth from one 
to two feet. The only water in sight 
,sas that of a small stream meander- 
ing through the center of the pond. 

This was the scene at 4:30 p.m. as 
two freshmen, sentenced to the job 
for breaking hazing rules, pkxided out 
from the west bank, the sophomore 
side, carrying the heavy manila rope. 
Several others waded through mire 
to help, and after two minutes of dif- 
ficult towing the rope reached the 
i ast bank. 

Frotdi Don't Stop 

Without waiting for the starting 
signal, approximately 150 freshmen 
grabbed the rope and started away at 
full speed. (The rules stated that 
•here should be no more than 50 con- 
. itaatS on each side.) 

Not content with this advantage, 
the frosh further aided their cause by 
•aking the rope half a turn around a 
telephone pole close to shore. Using 
to simplify the job they walked 
northward along the bank and suc- 
• • <led in capturing more than fifty- 
aids of the rope before the sopho- 
mores realized that the contest had 

Sophs Rally 

The sophomores rallied quickly to 

edy the situation by unloading 

the remaining hundred yards of rope 

fp»m the truck parked near the edge 

Although the manila was fast dis- 
appearing to the freshman side of the 
pond, the extra length allowed the 
sophomores (about 180 of them) to 

r^anize and attempt to make a 


With the aid of a number of specta- 
tors who decided to join the contest 
they succeeded in holding their 
ground momentarily, but seconds 
later the rope began to move toward 
the freshman side again as the sopho- 
mores went sliding rapidly toward 
the mud. The battle might have been 
lost right there but those nearest 
the pond wisely decided to drop the 
i"pe and retreat to better positions. 

Simultaneously trouble developed 
in the ranks of the freshmen and they 
Stopped pulling for a moment, which 

as time enough for the sophomores 

o recover their balance and turn the 

de of the battle. 

While doing so, they attempted un- 
av.ssfully to tie the rope to a jeep. 

"his failed when the vehicle almost 

urned over sideways. 

Before the freshmen could fully re- 

ver, a dozen of them were dragged 

the pond and the sophomores

UMBooters Blanked 3-0 
By Williams Soccermen 

A clever and rugged Williams soc- 
cer team clicked effectively in the 

rii st and fourth periods to down the 
Massachusetts Redmen 8«0 Saturday. 
at Williamstown. 

The first Williams goal was scored 
a few minutes after the opening 
whistle on a well executed play which 
caught the Massachusetts defense 
out of position. 

M!-(hit Offi n«tt>« 
With .. oint deficit the Bri 

- staged an all-out offensive 
the second and third quarters. 
However, repeated onslaughts by the 
goal-hungry Briggsmen failed to net 
them the equalizing tally. 

Ralph Carew, Red Winton, and 
Tony Ferreira looked good on the of- 
fense while l.yhn Jorge sparkled on 
the defense for the Redmen In a 
game which saw much rough play 
One Williams player and three Red- 
men were sidelined by injuries re- 
ceived in the spirited and loosely ref- 
i game. However, none of the 
players was seriously injured. 
Williams took over the scoring 
tin late in the fourth period, boot- 
ing home two more counters, while 
live-minded Redmen wen- 
caught up-field. 

The Rriggs' Routers will make 
their initial home stand this Satur- 
day at 2:00 p.m. when they face the

oiled up his thumb and set off OB the 
road. After much wasting of time 
standing on the roadside and some 
help from a few passing motorists, 

he arrived at Norwich just as the 
team was eating, had his dinner and 
was then- for his night's rest and

Complete Radio Studio 
For Physics Building 

An outstanding feature of the new 
Physics building which is now being 
constructed opposite Skinner Hall will 
be a completely equipped radio studio. 

Two rooms directly connected to 
the circular lecture hall on the first 
Boor have been set aside for the Stu- 
dio. The lecture hall should furnish 
ideal broadcast conditions since it h.i- 
been designed for perfect acoustics, 
and owing to the nearne.-s of the radio 

studio, programs might eaailj be 

broadcast from the .auditorium. Re 
ceivers, transmitters and experimen- 
tal devices will be housed on the 
second floor and two antennas are to the opportunity to discuss the que a 

be set Up On the roof. 

At the present time the physics 
department is not able to say whether 

or not the new quarters will be avail-

University faculty members will 
now be able to pursue studies towards 
advanced degrees without tuition 
charges, it was announced this week 
by President Ralph A. Van Met* r to 
new members of the faculty. 

Free tuition in the graduate school 
is available to all faculty member! 
from the rank of assistant professor 
down, President Van Meter said. This 
provision is not new on the statute 
books of the University, but the 
response to the plan has been unusual. 
At present, 27 persons arc enrolled 
in this plan of study. 

Most of the staff members working 
under this plan are taking their 
graduate degrees at other universities, 
but are doing much of the preliminary 
work here .at a minimum of expense. 
For example, Miss Vickery Hubbard 
of the physical education department 
is working toward her M.A. in history 
at the University of Chicago. The 
U of M program is giving her a

Overloading of the main circuit was 
responsible for the two blackouts oc- 
curring in Goodell Libe last week, it 
was revealed recently. A new trans-

periods of enforced gloom should not 
be repeated. 

The first blackout, of a week ago

and stay out until morning. The sec-

27 Foreign Students 
Are From 14 Countries 

Twenty seven students from 14 
foreign countries are at present en- 
rolled in the graduate school of the 
University of Massachusetts, it was 
announced recently by Director F. .1. 

Of these students, six are from 
China, three from Egypt, two from 
France, Pakistan, Turkey, Iran, and 
one each from Venezuela, Cuba, Nor- 
way, Canada, Bnssil, Chile, and Mexi- 

The greatest percentage of these, 
IS in fact, are food technology majors, 
the remainder being in the fields of 
chemistry, entomology, economics, ag- 
ricultural economics, home economics, 
and the romance languages. Mr. Pad- 
ma Rag Datta, of India, is enrolled 
as a special student. 

Three Are Women 

Three of the foreign students are 
women. They are Madame Suzanne 
Fifer of France, who is majoring in 
the romance languages and is also 
teaching; Evs Gnbrielscn of Norwsy 
in the field of home economics; and 
Grace Li-en Lew, of China, who it to 
graduate shortly as an entomologist. 

A number of these students have 
been sent to study in the United 
States by their governments. Those 
here from Egypt have been financed 
by the Egyptian ministry; those from 
India, by the government of that 
country; those from Pakistan by their 
government; those from Turkey, by 
the Turkish embassy; and Jose Ter- 
razas-Loyola, by the Rockefeller

Like all the rest of the class-weary 
students on campus the Collegian Re- 
porter stopped by the Old Chapel to 
watch the steeple jack. Observations 
which lopped off minutes of a psych 
class caused many a question to arise. 
First, what in tarnation was the guy 
doing up there? Second, how did he 
get the rope around the steeple? Was 
he a cowboy, perhaps who had las- 
soed his way to the top? That did 
not seem possible Even from afar 
off, the jack did not have that bow- 
legged look associated with cowhands 
and various and sundry other trades. 

A conclusion was reached which 
every newspaper man must face. The 
only thing to do was to ask. 

"Hey, Mac, what in hell are you 
doing up there?" 

"Want to come up and see?" 

Now everyone knows that a Col- 
legian reporter is fearless. However, 
the choice had to be made as to 
whether it was better to risk losing 
one story or one staff member. The 
offer was graciously declined. The 

togetberg for faculty and graduate 
ami foreign students on the question 
"What Can Man Believe?" will make 
up the EmbSSSy'l events. 

Tea Next Wednesday 
The schedule includes a tes with

and Dean and Mrs. William Machmer 
at the Abbey from 4:00 to 6:80, next

Discussions on the q uestion "What 
can man believe?" will begin that 
night from 7:00 to 9:00 at the various

night will be a discussion for the 
faculty at the Faculty Club from 7:.'<0

False Alarms No Joke 

Campus pranksters were hard at work last week turning in 
three false alarms in seven days. Since there are approximately 
twenty five of these turned in during the school year, the week's 
record was not exceptional. It does, however, point up a situation 
which would be absurd if it were not so potentially dangerous. 
Certainly it would seem that students of college age would not 
have to revert to childish practices in order to amuse themselves. 
With so many wooden structures now on campus, the threat 
of a disastrous fire is always present. The destruction of the En- 
gineering Building last year is still a vivid memory for most of us. 
At a time when our facilities are so overcrowded we cannot afford 
to sustain a loss. Moreover, sending fire engines racing on a fool's 
errand may let a fire rage unchecked and so destroy the life of a 
fellow student. 

False Alarms Irk 
Amherst Firemen 

"In the past four years more than 
100 false alarms have been rung in 
to the Amherst Fire Department from 
the same alarm box on the University 
campus," reported Acting Chief Cav- 

His statement was released after 
the occurrence of two false alarms 
early in the morning of October L3. 
The first alarm was turned in at 1:06 
from box 46 In front of Draper Hall. 
At 1:.'58 the fire department returned 
to the campus, this time summoned by 
a false alarm from box 451 in front 
of Drill Hall. 

Kach time that the fire trucks go 
out, Fire Chief Cavanaugh said, the 
expenses incurred cost the taxpayers 
of Amherst $60. The LOO and more 
false alarms which have been issued 
from box 40 alone have totaled to over 
$6000 wasted in the past four years — 
plus the vain efforts of the firemen 
responding to the alarms. 

The person who repeatedly sounds 
the alarms from box 40 must be a 
senior by now, Chief Cavanaugh re- 
marked, as false alarms have been 
turned in in great numbers since the 
arrival of this year's senior class in 
the fall of 1945. 

The penalty for violating the law by 
sounding false alarms is one year in 
prison and or a fine ranging from $100 
to $1000. 

Chief Cavanaugh reported that he 
expects that something will soon be 
done to prevent such offenses. 

Collegian Profile No. 4 

Maclver Had Novel Wake-Up Formula 

A cold shower, two swallows of vod- 
ka, and two laps around the Central 
Park Reservoir was a daily wake-up 
formula for Ian Tennant Morrison 
Maclver (he's over six feet tall, too) 
in the days when he lived in New 
York City. 

After these rites Mr. Maclver was 

to give more time to serious painting 
than ever before, and he set aside 
five hours each day for it.

Massachusetts Newspapers Wax Enthusiastic 
Over U OF M, State Educational Needs 

(Fditor\ Note: Ttu- followim/ editorial appeared in the B—Um Sunday 
HERALD on Sunday, October 17. The HERALD has been to**** more 
widespread educational opportuyiities in Massa-chuxetts.) 

Speaking at the inauguration of the new president of the 
University of Massachusetts yesterday, President Conant of Har- 
vard adverted to one of his favorite themes, the need for two-year 
"community colleges" to provide educational opportunities for 
those who desire more than the conventional high school prepara- 
tion but who cannot afford regular college training. 

The Harvard president pointed out some rather startling 
statistics on higher education in Massachusetts to support his 
thesis. In 1940, he said, about 54 per cent of eligible Massachu- 
setts young people graduated from high school as compared with 
a national average of 47 per cent, but only 16 per cent enrolled for 
post-high school education in the Commonwealth as compared with 
17 per cent in the nation as a whole. 

Since the war Massachusetts' relative position in higher edu- 
cation has deteriorated. A somewhat higher percentage of Bay 
Staters of college age now actually continue their studies after 
high school— roughly 22 per cent— but the national percentage has 
jumped, meanwhile, to 25 per cent. The more recent figures are 
acknowledged to be only rough estimates, but they indicate a suf- 
ficient disparity between state and national standards to cause 
serious concern. 

Dr. Conant believes that one of the principal causes for Massa- 
chusetts' poor standing is financial. The Commonwealth has fewer 
tax-supported institutions of higher learning than many other 
states and its private schools and colleges tend to concentrate in 
the Greater Boston area with the result that students from up- 
state must bear the cost of board as well as tuition. 

Locally supported junior colleges may not be the whole an- 
swer to Massachusetts' problem in this field but we agree that 
they offer great promise. Under postwar enabling legislation, New- 
ton and several other Massachusetts communities have actually 
set up such colleges with tuition fees set so as to return only the 
actual cost to the towns. These experiments should be watched 
with great interest and should be given every encouragement as 
testing grounds. 

In the past, Massachusetts has been pre-eminent in the field 
of public education. Initiative has come largely from the localities. 
Although local tax resources are limited and the state itself cannot 
afford to be profligate in its aid, Massachusetts cannot fail to find 
within itself a means for meeting the broader demands for educa- 
tional opportunity which are now making themselves felt through- 
out the country. 

Sociologist Thinks Fast 

It happened in a sociology class 
in Old Chapel. 

The professor had launched into 
a particularly discursive treatment of 
man's evolution. With such terms as 
"origin of the specie . . . metaphysical 
beliefs . . . and primatal descendancy" 
it was evident that the prof had gone 
too far afield. 

Finally, a hand shot up in the rear 
of the room, and a student queried 
cynically, "Professor, which comes 
first, the chicken or the egg?" A 
wave of stifled chuckles passed over 
the class. 

The professor stonily inspected his 
questioner for a moment then, with a 
twinkle in his eye replied, "The roost- 
er, m'boy, the rooster." 


mentary uplift from the beaming 
faces of his students at the U of M 
design, drawing, and painting classes 
he teaches. 

When those students fail to beam 
as desired, which evidently hasn't 
happened during the last year, the 
bachelor instructor would go snow 
bathing in the Fort River. No lack of 
nerve has caused the discontinuance 
of this invigorating practice. Too 
many curious noses got in the way. 

During the war Mr. Maclver was 
a member of the Army Map Service. 
He was engaged in laying out a series 
of air navigation charts of the world. 

During the past summer he decided

pose, the largest part of his output 
depicts the landscape of New York, 
Canada, and New England. 

The American Artist magazine of 
April 1947 comments on his water- 

"The color is well-modulated; the 
forms have been eliminated of all ex- 
traneous detail; and composition has 
been cohesively organized." 

Mr. Mac Iver says of his own ap- 

"I seldom, if ever, paint a water- 
color while lukewarm . . . The time 
required to finish a picture may be 
from half an hour to several years 
(working intermittently). Variable, 
too, is the scale of the picture, which 
may range from postcard to double 
elephant size, or larger." 

Likes the Open Spaces 

In spare time Mr. Mac Iver enjoys 
the open spaces. He learned to swim 
and to handle a canoe at his summer 
cottage in Canada before he was six 
years old. Before the war he went 
on long canoe trips in Ontario. Canoe 
and skiff racing are sports he has 
tried in many Ontario regattas. 

For ten days of July 19-39 Mr. Mac- 
lver took a walking trip. Averaging 
about 40 miles a day for the first 
nine days, and covering 63 miles in 
a last-day spurt, he hiked along the 
Susquehanna Valley from the George 
Washington Bridge in New York City 
to upstate Niagara — and that's a bit 
of a walk in these days of comfortable 

The traveler's comment: 

"The country was very hilly, and — 
rather hot." 

Tries Yoga Exercise 

A book on Yoga exercises in a 
store window once caught Mac's eye. 
"Now here's something I've never 
tried before," he thought. Always in- 
terested in new and unusual things, 
Mac went in and got the book. He 
practised the exercises. 

Among several strange feats the 
discipline of these exercises taught 
him to perform was a swallowing 
act — one of a series of purification 
exercises. After dipping 25 feet of 
surgical gauze four inches wide into 
a bowl of water, he proceeded to 
swallow it all but the last foot — with- 
out salt or pepper. 

These exercises were abandoned as 
soon as interest began to lag among 

On the U of M campus Mac can be 
easily recognized all winter long by 
the marked absence of an overcoat. 
This is a habit, he explains, that is 
learned with no trouble, and there is 
an outside chance that it will make 
any who try it healthy and hale, if 
it's not too late.

Major Candidates To Be 
Forum Subject Oct. 28 

Plans have been completed by the 
U of M Political Union for the co- 
sponsorship with the International Re- 
lations Club, of a political forum to 
be held on Thursday, October 28 in 
Old Chapel auditorium. 

Entitled "Truman, Dewey, or Wal- 
aco?", the forum will bring together 
<>n one platform three speakers, re- 
presenting the three parties. It is ex- 
pected that Foster Furcolo, Democra- 
tic candidate for Congress from the 
-nd Congressional district will repre- 
sent the Democratic party. Definite 
information on the names of the Re- 
publican and Progressive speakers 
was not yet available at press time.

The Indians had attacked the vil- 
lage, and the dwellings were in 
flames. Panic-stricken villagers rushed 
blindly to and fro among the burning 
buildings trying desperately to sal- 
vage their meager belongings One 
little boy raced from a flaming house 
staggering under the burden of a 
chair at least twice his size. Every- 
where wa# disorded and confusion — 
"Cut, and print that!" cried the 

This waa only one incident in the 
young life of Mr. Arthur Niedeck, 
who now complains that he has never 
done anything unusual. 

Mr Niedeck, assistant professor of 
speech and faculty adviser to the 
Rioster Doisters here at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts, was born and 
raised in Ithica, New York, the pre- 
Hollywood headquarters of the motion 
picture industry. Thus, as a boy, he 
had many opportunities to serve as 
an extra in the movie "extrava- 
ganzas" of the day. 

Besides playing the youngster with 
the chair, Mr. Niedeck acted as an 
extra in such serials as "The Kxploits 
of Elaine" — a Pearl White sequel to 
the "Perils of Pauline", and the Bea- 
trice Fairfax epics. 

As an extra, Mr. Niedeck had oc- 
casion to work in pictures starring 
popular actors of silent films including 
Pearl White, Lionel Barrymore, Irene 
Castle, and Francis X. Bushman. The 
result of this boyhood work is a large 
collection of stills from the pictures 
which were filmed there in Ithica. 

Mr. Nio-deck laughingly reminisces 
about the Saturday line-ups at the 
local hotel when the young extras 
filed past bushel baskets of dollar 
bills and received their pay, one dol- 
lar, for the week's work. Doubtless, 
Saturday afternoons were spent at the 
local movie houses. 

On completing his studies in the- 
atre at Ithica College, Mr. Niedeck 
went to Cornell University to do grad- 
uate work. Later he taught dramatics 
in the public schools of Binghamton, 
New York, then returned to Ithica to 
take a similar position in the public 
schools there. 

He became director of extracurricu- 
lar activities at Ithaca, and at the 
same time had charge of training 
dramatic teachers at both Ithica Col- i 
lege and Cornell University. 

Traveling with stock companies and 
doing radio work gave Mr. Niedeck 
more experience which enables him to 
guide our Roister Doisters with an 
able, professional hand. 

Frosh And Sophs 
Needed For NSA 

Freshman and sophomore volun- 
teers are urgently needed to make 
the campus chapter of the National 
Student Association a going concern, 

George Runquist, U of M chairman 

of the NSA committee announced this 


All those interested in helping to 

organize the local chapter can con- 
tact George at Theta Chi fraternity, 
telephone 8876, or drop a note in the 
Senate mailbox in Mem. Hall. The 
desire to work is the only qualifica- 
tion needed. 

The U of M voted to join the Na- 
tional Student Association, a non- 
political group, in a special referen- 
dum last spring. Other area colleges 
which are members are Smith, Mt 
Holyoke, and Springfield. 

A project assigned to the local 
chapter is setting up an intercollegi- 
ate service agency to coordinate and 
stimulate the activity of the clubs 
and organisations on different cam- 
puses. Mt. Holyoke College is at pres- 
ent working on discrimination, while 
Springfield is working on cooper 
fitive student buying.

in organizational efforts. Both at-

Religious Groups Form 
To Draw U.R.C. Charter 

The United Religious Council, a 
unit which functioned on this cam- 
pus in pie-war years, is returning to 

the U of M this year. A committee 
Composed of one representative each 

from the Newman Club, Student 
Christian Association, and Hillel 
Foundation has drawn up a tentative 
constitution for the group. 

This constitution has been ajt- 
proved by the executive- councils of 
the various organizations, and will 
D) presented to the new Senate im- 
mediately after elections. If areept- 
( o by the Senate, it will go to the 
member organizations for ratifica- 
: tinn. 

The new council, if approved, will 
work to bring about better under- 
I standing and cooperation among the 
j various faiths on campus. Tentative 
plans for the group include joint 
dances and meetings, and it is hoped 
that prominent speakers of each 
faith may be secured for joint con- 

The constitution drawn up by a 
committee comprised of Samuel Cop- 
pieman, Miriam Marston, and Betty 
Kreiger provides for two representa- 
tives to the council from each of the 
three member organizations, with 
each faith having one vote. Execu- 
tive plans also include a rotating 
chairmanship, plus a permanent sec- 
retary and treasurer. 

NSA, the National Student Assoc 
lation gained a staunch friend on 
CSmpuS this summer. He is Ted 
Blank, '49 who spent 12 weeks on a 
tour of Europe arranged by the NSA 
in cooperation with itudenl organi- 
zations in several European countries. 

Ted spent a week in Paris, two 
more weeks touring France, three 
weeks in Belgium and Holland, and 
finished with a tour of England and 

Leaving from Quebec on a Hutch 
ship carrying TOO American and 
Canadian students, Ted landed in 
Rotterdam where he left in a group 
of ">l» girls and 50 fellows for Paris. 
Here they spent time with French 
students and crowded their week with 
tours of the Louvre and famous Paris 
spots. Ted, win. had brushed up on 
his high school French and studied 
some French political history to get 
himself oriented, didn't spend all his 
time in political discussions, however, 
lb took in the Folies Bergeres and 
during the summer wore out two pairs 
of shoes visiting the back streets otr

Meals in some of the small really

and included four tastv courses, savs 

Meets Movie Stars 
Ted met movie stars Wallace Beery, 
Edward G Robinson, Mary Pkkford 
and Baddy Rogers at s buffet sup- 
per at the American embassy. He also 

saw the Duke and Duchess of Wind 

■or, but missed .Jean Paul Sartre, ex 
ponent of Kxistentialism who was in 
America. He also looked up some 
relatives in Paris who had spent 
years during the occupation in con- 
centration camps or in hiding. 

From Paris Ted went on to Dijon, 
French hot mustard center, "The fact 
that then- were M hot dogs to put 
under the mustard was more than 
compensated for by Champagne at 
11.60 a bottle," said Ted. Ted said his 
group sang American songs to French 

students and learned some French 

songs in return mostly drinking 


"The Frenchman can spot an 

American every time by his walk, the 
cut of his clothes and hair cut," .-.aid 

Visit* The Riviera 
After a da\ in Geneva, Ted left his 
group and vi.-ited the Uiviera. -The 
French bathing suits are all that they 
are supposed to be and even less," 
said Ted, thumbing through his diary. 
July 11, Bastille day found Ted in 

Nice where there was s display of 
fireworks "There were lots of fairs 
and carnivals in Europe last ■ummer," 

Ted reports. 

Ted rejoined his group in time to 
go to Brussels, where be found the 
Belgians very well off. Ted explained 
that Uranium deposits in the Belgium 

Congo have given the Belgians a g 1 

dollar supply, and that Belgian light 
industry MMU easier to convert and 
build up than the heavy Industrie! 

of other countries. 

Every veteran in Ted's group re- 
ceived a medal in token of Belgian 
gratitude. Better than the medal says 
Ted was a dance at a fair, which 

was performed in ostrich plume hats 
and padded suits. The danc,. i s one 
imported from Spain in the lf>th 
Century, says Ted. 

Europeans "Politics Conscious" 

Ted found Europeans verj politics 

conscious, "but it is very difficult to 
draw any generalisations, since there 
are many political parties and posi- 
tions. They are quite proud and thus 
slightly leery of American aid," said 
Ted. Some said they would just as 
soon go a little hungry as be indebted 
to the U.S.A. 

Prepaid expenses to the NSA, which 
incluudod transportation, food and 
lodgings was only 8M0, and if one 
travels with the group, he should be 
able to make the trip for only $700,

Polite Police Fool Feldman 

Bill Feldman, of A.K.T., recently 
drove his 1936 Hudson convertible up 
to one of the town's policemen to ask 
directions to a certain street here in 
Amherst. Bill's question was politely- 
answered, but the cop had an inquiry 
of his own. 

"Where's your license and registra- 
tion?" asked the gendarme. 

Feldman, in crossing the intersec- 
tion to reach the policeman on the 
opposite corner, had failed to notice a 
STOP sign.

Poll Shows Quiet Place For Study 
Hard To Find; Libe Badly Crowded 

With a record breaking total of 
:*:S<)4 students roaming the U of M 
campus this year, the chances for 
finding a place oil campus that is quiet 
enough to study arc becoming prac- 
tically nil. 

Former two-man dormitory rooms 
are now bousing three, and many 

times, four students. Hutterfield and 
Chadbourne recreation rooms along 
with such unlikely spots as the Cage 
and .Mem Ball have temporarily 
served as men's housing units. Only 
about two thirds of the students in 
dormitories have their own desks. 

The library, although an addition 
is in the appropriation stage, can seat 
only ten per cent of the student body. 
It should be able to seat 25 per cent 
of the students. 

In an effort to ascertain how and 
where students are studying under the 
present crowded conditions, a Col- 
legian reporter conducted a poll last 
week asking the question, "Where do 
you study?" 

The following statements are some 
of the responses he received:

get everything 1 want right here in 
the "rec" room. 

James S. Johnson '50, Chadbourne 
rec room: No kicks meant, but this 
recreation room isn't the best place 
to study. With 25 fellows in the room 
you can't do too much. 

Bradford MacNulty '49 Four-man 
room: We make out all right because 
one fellow goes down to the library 
regularly, and the other is a "frat" 
man who does his studying there, so 
that just about solves our problem. 

Paul Bernardin '50: I try to study 
in my room except at those times 
when I have to look up references at 
the library. 

Arnold Kunefsky '51, Berkshire dor- 
mitory: This is one of the hardest 
places on campus to study, because of 
the continual racket of building ac-

In his inaugural address, Dr. Van 
Meter sketched the growth of land 
grant colleges, declaring that they 
developed out of the needs of the peo- 
ple for the kind of education which 
would concern itself more closely 
with the solution of human problems. 
He noted that the democratic ideal 
had now advanced another step in de- 
manding that education be granted 
not merely to a chosen few but to all 
the youth with a capacity for higher 
If arning. 

"This further development," he 
said, "will affect all colleges and uni- 
v< rsities in the years ahc:id but none 
more profoundly than the State Uni- 

Stresses Need For Integration 

In describing the role of this uni- 
versity in the total picture, he 
stressed the need for further inte- 
gration of existing schools on both 
the graduate and undergraduate lev- 
els. He looked toward the expansion 
of facilities in order to admit those 
high school graduates desirous of 
higher education who must now he 

"We face the future with a deep 
sense of responsibility," he conclud- 
ed, "for the part we must play in 
moving into practice the American 
ideals of higher education . . . We 
are confident of the continuing sup- 
port of the people and their elected 
representative! as, in the words of 
President Fdliot of Purdue, we move 
toward 'Democracy's goal of educa- 
tion' and 'education's goal of democ- 
racy.' "

U of Mass Favored over U of Mass 


by Art Burt man 

A fast, shifty Rhode Island Stat* 
football team, employing an impress- 
ive, offensive attack, defeated the U

last Saturday before 2500 fans.

Rhode Island tied the (tame mi'

Kir returned a U of M puni 16 yards 
to the Mass. 16. Two passes by Cur- 
tis were good for 30 yards, with Dal 
and Curtis, accounting for I* 
more yards on the ground. Edgar 
climaxed the drive with an off-tackle 
plunge from the one-yard line to 
score. The conversion failed, and the 
game was deadlocked 6-6, at the half

The fourth stanza found the Mass

count at 12-all. scoring from then

Home Coming Day 
UVM — Oct. 30 

Booters Enter Win Column 
Defeating Clark and WPI 3-1 

edictions: 'Pl ow Jockeys' To Beat 
'Lincoln Fugitives' And Vice Versa 


In the good news department to- 
day: The lights are finally in at the 
Skating rink, and final work should 
be completed soon. There's still some 
levelling and some small jobs await- 
ing the finishing touches. 

Co-incidence: The soccer team's two 
victories were over two squads from 
the same city, by the same scores and 
were played in the same week. 

As the word has probably already 
spread, here's just a brief reminder 
of this coming Saturday's football 
game with Devens There will be a j 
hop given at the Arbella Club at the 
Fort on Fridaj Bight, to which the 
Devens Social Activities Committee 
has extended an invitation to the stu- 
dents on this campus. Also, before 
the name, on Saturday, there will he 

an open house at the same club 

Overnite housing facilities will be 
provided for those wishing to attend 
the game, and accommodations will 
be free, with a dollar deposited for 
linens, to be refunded when the bed- 
ding is returned. What co-operation! 
In the 'Spirit' Dcp't : Over 100 from 
the I'M campus attended the RI game 
last week, and to the delight of the 
crowd (estimated at over 2,000), this 
contingent, led by two cheerleaders, 
rose in unison to sing our Alma 
Mater, to the applause of the RI 
rooters. But what pleased the UM- 
sters most was that they did a pretty 
good job — without a band to help 
them along. 

Excerpts from the STATESMAN, 
Devens paper (as if you didn't know): 
Devens Chiefs vs. Country Cousins 

"Tin- Devens eleven will meet the 
invading farmers from Amherst in 
what we hope to be a bloody struggle 
on the Metacomb on next Saturday. 
the 2:?rd, at 2:00 p.m." Rich talk! 

We'd also like to call attention to 
a front page article from the 
STATESMAN reprinted on the 
Sports page in this issue. It may be 
all in fun, but from past experience 
• >n that 'rag' I dunno. Anyway, it 
adds to the spirit of the thing. 

No predictions, but I wouldn't be 
surprised if the mother college gave 
her very young child a spanking 
come Saturday. Cockiness can be 
overdone! As we go into Saturday's 
game, reports have Pasini probably 
able to play, as he has been taking

The varsity soccer team broke into 
the win-column with a vengeance 
last week when they turned in tw. 
impressive triumphs over Clark and 
WTI to even up their won-lost record 
at 2-2. 

One week ago, Wednesday, Clark 
U became the first victim of the high 
flying Redmen by a 3-1 score in a 
game played -at Worcester. Th< 
P.riggs Booters were far superior to 
their opponents and, although they 
came up with only three goals as s 
result of their fierce offensive, it 
seemed that only fate prevented thre. 
or four other scores from being 
booted into the Clark nets. All thre. 
scores came on well executed plays 
with Chet Libucha, Red Winton, and 
Frank Kulas, being credited with 
booting home one tally apiece. 
Win First Home Came 
Playing their first home game of 
the season Saturday, the U of M 
soccer team put on a fine exhibition 
of passing, heading, and teamwork 
in whipping Worcester Tech 8-1 be 
fore a hundred enthusiastic observers. 
Using a highly coordinated attack 
the U of M booters swept down th.' 
field time and again to pepper the 
Worcester goal from all angles. Th. 
Redmen missed many scoring oppoi 
tunities, but the goals they did score 
came as a result of some keen pass 
work. The first score came from th. 
I talented toe of Chet Libucha who 
| took a short pass from Red Winton 
before sailing the ball into the left 
corner of the nets. In the second peri- 
od, Frank Kulas took a hard pa 
from the center halfback .and neatly 
headed a perfect pass to Red Winton 
who then notched the second U of M 

After a scoreless third period, tl 
Engineers scored their lone goal in 
the last quarter on a be/iutiful sfc I 
that was taken 21 yards out Th 
Brifffsmen came right hack to SCO] 
their third tally when Joe Lit took 
a long pass from center, split the 
defense, and drove the ball past th.' 
Worcester net-minder. 

Connecticut Saturday 
This Saturday at 2:00 p.m. the U 
of M soccer team will be host to the 
powerful U of Connecticut hooters, 
who will come here, sporting an un- 
defeated, unscored upon record.

Chet Corkum and Jackie Pyne can

The big days a-comin! The big- 
gest ball game and or biggest blow- 
out ever flung on the Fitchburg line 
since old Hank Thoreau went off with 
a hangover to the simple life. The

Saturday when the Devens Chiefs go 
out to give battle agin' the plow- 
jockeys from the mother school. 
L'MFD vs. UMA . . . and crowds of 
enthusiastic supporters will be there, 
to wander through the corridors, 
down which, in their youth, they 
hurled ash-cans at each other. Stu- 
dents of architecture will be study- 
ing the renovated Chatterbox. Ad- 
mirers of Camels and Pall Malls will 
stand around measuring cigarettes. 
Thimble-fulls of fine-aged liqueurs 
will be handed out at soirees in Es- 
sex and Suffolk. Norfolk will echo to 
ghostly feet. It will be a great day, 
Saturday. We aren't predicting Sun- 

On Friday night at ten o'clock 
there will be a monster rally and 
bonfire on the Parade Ground. Bring 
your own Parade Ground. Previous 
rallies held at Devens have alwayB 
been things to remember when the 
Devens hellions had a chance for a 
little legal hell-raising. 

Before, during, and after the rally 
there will be a dance at the Arbella 
Club under the auspices of the Dev- 
ens Activities Committee, with a fa- 
miliar local orchestra providing the 
music, and there'll be plenty of girls!

Probable starting backfield for Devens in Saturday's grid tilt line up 
for inspection. In the usual order: Larson, Anestis, Nagel and Cormier, 
reported ready for action on all fronts. 

This Saturday afternoon the Mas- 

schusetti Redmen travel t>> Ayer, 

Mass. where they will tangle with a 
highly touted I (evens squad. An cn.o 

moos crow. I of former Devensites 
and other Interested bystanders is 
expected to accompany the team foi 

what should prove to be the 'blood 

lest* battle of the year. 

The Devens team has quite an tin 

presslve record, winning one, tying 

two, and losing only one. No team so 
far has scored more than one touch- 
down against their tight defense, 
only three touchdowns being scored 
against them in the drsl four fames 
Devens stared off the season with 
a M2-0 win over QttOnsel Na\al, fol- 
lowed by consecutive 7-7 ties with 
Worcester Tech and American Inter- 
national. This week thry suffered 
their first defeat at the bands of a 

powerful St. Michaels team, 8-0. 

The big men in the Devens back- 
field are .John Anestis, ami co-captain 
Fran Nagle. Anestis is running hard, 
and Nagle is having a good year call- 
ing plays and throwing passes. Bros 
Cormier and John Larson round out 
the probable starting backfield. 

The line boasts such standouts as 
Co-captain Art Bazer and his broth- 
er Al at the guards, John Klaiber 
and Bob Byrne, 210 pound tackles, 
and Arnold Pinto, last year's star 

The Devens team scoring punch de- 
p< nds a great deal on the arm of 
Fran Nagle, who also kicks a mean 
punt. Lately the Devens team has 
seemed to lack scoring punch inside 
of the ten yard line, or their record 
might be really outstanding. 

The Devensmen tied the Aces of 
Springfield only because one of the 
Devens touchdowns was called back 
on an offside penalty. On the other 
hand, it is reported that Devens was 
lucky to tie Worcester Tech. IN this 
game their score was set up in the 
final two minutes of play on a pass 
play that went from their own 20 
yard line to the Tech seven. 

The Redmen are in fine spiritual 
if not in fine physical shape for their 
arch rivals. Former Devens stars 
contend that they will fight even 
harder against their past teammates. 
Buzz Harrington, who has been 
playing a lot of end for the Redmen 
lately, had this to say about the 
game, "It will be the hardest fought 
game of the year. I have only the 
greatest respect for Bob Davis, whom 
I feel will throw everything he has 
at us. It ought to be quite an experi- 
ence playing opposite my old friend, 
John Klaiber." 

Another former Devensman is 
Wally Cox, a guard who only last 
week was given a boost for his fine 
play in the Worcester Tech game. He 
says, "The team that gets the breaks 
will go to town. From tackle to tackle 
they look fully as good as us, but 
when we get rolling we are hard to 
stop. Devens main chances lie with 
Nagle's arm and Anestis running."

Theta Chis Rescue 
Bottled-Up Skunk 

A situation fraught with atmos- 
phere was narrowly averted last night 
by the quick action and nerve of one 
of the member! of the Theta Chi fra- 
ternity of this campus. 

A member of the species Mephitis 
(skunk to you) was found outside the 
Theta Chi house with its head en- 
cased in a jar. The bottled skunk had 
been attempting to shatter the jar 
on the sidewalk, but its efforts had 
not been visibly successful. 

The frat men, desiring to remove 
the unwelcome visitor marshalled 
their forces. One enthusiastic mem- 
ber came bounding out of the house 
with a shot gun, but another more 
humane fratter motioned his lethal 
brother back and himself advanced 
00 the embattled animal. (Jrasping 
the jar firmly, he gave a determined 
yank. Off MUM the jar and oft* ran 
the skunk. 

The boys are very grateful that 
the freed animal showed his gratitude 
by not polluting the air with the 
chemical warfare section of his ana-

IZFA Stars Drive 
For New Members 

The University of Massachusetts i 
chapter of the Intercollegiate Zionist ' 
Federation of America has launched 
its membership campaign for the cur- 
rent year. During the next week, the 
membership committee which has rep- 
resentatives in each house, will con- 
tact students and explain the func- 
tions of this organization which has 
over 125 chapters in American and 
Canadian colleges and universities. 

Heading the membership commit- 
tee is President Ralph Fishman, who 
is being assisted by Mort Laby, Hy 
Kdelstein, Bill Less, Rae Liner, Elaine 
Judelson, Barbara Sherter, Murray i 
Altsher, Elbert Taitz, and Irving Tay- | 

Plans «are being formulated for the 
Western Massachusetts Seminar in 
which the U of M chapter will be 
host at Hillel House. October 23-24. 
The following chapters will partici- 
pate: Smith, Mt. Holyoke, Springfield, 
Amherst, Ft. Devens, Clark, and the 
U of M. 

Dr. Boris Nelson, of the language 
and music department of Fort Devens 
will speak on "Israel and World Poli- 
tics". A dance, refreshments and en- 
tertainment will also feature the 
weekend affair. More complete infor- 
mation and the schedule of events 
will be announced next week. 

The group intends to make a field 
trip to the vicinity of Mount Tom 
soon in order to familiarize the cam- 
pus radio operators with the opera- 
tion of portable radio equipment. In 
the advent of any emergency, such as 
a flood or forest fire, members will 
operate short wave transmitters and 

Handicapped by the lack of equip- 
ment and a "hamshack", the mem- 
bers have been meeting in Room 110 
of Stockbridge and pooling the use 
of their radio sets in an effort to 
teach new members the radio code 
and theory necessary for an amateur 
radio operator's license so that they 
will be able to make contact with the 
many other "hams" scattered 
throughout the country. 

The group has elected Jay Doane 
(WIRGE) as new president; Frank 
Padykula (WIKWX) vice president; 
Allen Taylor, secretary; John Bier- 
nacki, treasurer; and Carl Cutler 
publicity manager. Prof. W. \V.

Foreign Students 

Continued from page 1 

Most Plan To Return 

Most of the students are studying 
to receive their M.A. and Ph.D. de- 
grees and are planning to return to 
their native countries after gradua- 
tion. A few, however, plan to make 
the United States their home. Mr. 
Hormoz Broumand-N'ejad of Iran ex- 
pressed a wish to remain in the 
United States, settle down, and main 
a nice American girl. 

On the whole, the foreign student! 
find the studies here easy, providing 
they become moderately familiar with 
the English language. In order to be- 
come better acquainted with the ways 
of the American people and with the 
countries of one another, they have 
organized an International Club, of 
which Gholi Khazai is the president. 

The club is made up not only of 
foreign students, but also Americans.

Stockbridge Gridsters Beat Nichols 
6-0 In Second Game Of The Year 

With 'Kelly' OvLan as the main of- 
fensive star, our SOx'kbridpe eleven 
last Friday dispayed a brand of foot- 
ball that would be a credit in any 
enthusiast's calculation, or in any 
coach's mind. 

Receiving a kick on his own 15 
yard line at the 8 minute point, 'Kelly' 
completely shifted his footing and 
jaunted 85 yards for the only score of 
the entire game. 

From this point on, our line was 
superb in cracking every offensive 
move the Nichols, now maddened, 
team could display. Sumner Schwartz, 
a holdover star tackle from last year, 
played with qualities which netted 
him all scholastic rating in high

The biggest threat from Nichols 
came in the third quarter, when, after 
a bad kick put the hall on our own 
;<8 yard line, successful sweeps car- 

ried the ball to the 8 yard line. At 
this point, a fumble caused them to 
loose control.

The loss of Johnny Gorman, 200 
pound frosh tackle was compensated 
for by the debut of some promising 
reserves. Gorman received a knee 
injury in a pre-game scrimmage. 

Another loss to the team was that

team Wally Campbell. Wally retired 
from the game with a head injury

Murmurs among the student body about our athletic showing 
arose to an audible hum after the Devens game. The CoDegfaw 
can no longer ignore this undercurrent of opinion. It is time 

to bring- the situation out into the open and discuss it honestly in 
the light of the future good of the school in general. . . 

The loss of the Devens game in itself is not a big issue. How- 
ever, it points up the fact that our athletic record, particularly 
in football and basketball, has been on the downgrade for the past 
two years. The situation has now reached the stage where a seri- 
ous evaluation of the entire athletic program is in order. 

It should be obvious to all that discussion of the matter at a 
time when the football team has not finished its schedule is likely 
to be detrimental to the team's showing. Yet, with student morale 
over athletics apparently at a new low, there seems n<> justifica- 
tion for remaining silent. We realize that there have been exten- 
uating circumstances: injuries have hindered the operation of the 
team, and the officiating in the Norwich game left much to be de-

Editorial CsatMSMSd from Page 1 

sired Nevertheless, the records so far (see page 4) show that 
with better material available for football this year than last, the 
team's record has not been what it should be. 

Moreover, for the first time we have a valid basis for compari- 
son in that Devens has beaten us not only in football, but also in 
baseball, basketball, and soccer. Against a completely unsubsi- 
dized team from a part of our own University we have made a 
poor showing, as well as against others on our schedule. What is 

the answer*.' 

The Collegian does not pretend to be all-knowing about the 
situation. The end to be reached is improvement— by the best 
possible means. It is time for an open statement of those opinions 
which have been heretofore only surreptitious whispers. We will 
welcome letters to the Editor on the subject of the entire athletic 
situation, in an attempt to clear up the present confusion. 

Let it be understood that the Collegian does not advocate ex- 
pansion of athletics to the deteriment of scholastics. However. 
a school is judged to a large extent by the record of its athletic 
teams. Even more important than that, student morale is greatly 
affected by athletic records. There is no sense in having losing 
teams when we have the potential material to rank among the 
better small schools in the Northeast. This is not a criticism of 
the individual abilities of any member of the football or basket- 
ball teams, but of the over-all performance of both teams and 
coaches. Since we are in the midst of a football season, that sport 
serves best to illustrate the situation. 

So far, the information reaching our ears indicates that the 
caching of our team has not been what it should be. But there 
is still room for more complete expression of opinion on the sub- 
ject. If airing the situation makes the football team fighting mad 
enough to win the Vermont game, we will feel that much has been 
accomplished. We should like to admit that the whole matter is 
just a tempest in a teapot. H such is the case, we will freely say so. 

We are not out for scalps— we are out for improvement. It 
is time for students, faculty, administration and alumni to ex- 
amine closely the entire athletic stiuation with a view to discover- 
ing how it can best be improved. 

by Henry Drewniany 

"Berkeley Square is the finest play 
of the season— a play that casts a 
spell" were the words of New York 
Time's Brooks Atkinson, following the 
opening night back in 1926 of the 
play to be presented at this campus by 
the Roister Doisters on November 12 
and IS. 

The theme of the play deals with a 
fascinating meta-physical conception 
of time which may leave the ordinary 
playgoer somewhat befuddled by a 
problem to which we have all, at MM 
time or another, devoted some 

Peter Standish, a young American 
architect, played by veteran Roister 
Doister Paul Stenard, enters upon an 
adventure in which he steps into the 
shoes of an ancestor who lived during 
the 18th century. This is brought 
about by the inheritance of an old 
English house by Standish and a 
subsequent obsession in Peter to live 
among the ancestors who had once 
occupied the house. 

After Standish finds himself cast 
back into the 18th century complica- 
tions begin. A love affair with Helen 
Pottigrew (Doris Carbone), plans for 
the marriage of Peter to Helen's sis- 
ter Kate (Alice Chorbanian) formu- 
lated by autocratic Lady Anne (Doris 
Abramson, whose performance in last 
year's Joan of Lorraine created such 
a sensation) and the lashing tongue 
of the coarse, cynical Tom Pettigrew 
(Charles Plumer) along with many 
other humorous situations prove to be 
too much for Standish. 

Other students participating in the 
play are Dorothy Lipnick, maid; Mor- 
ris Ankeles, Mr. Throstle; Cliff Knox, 
Ambassador; Phyllis Cole, Mrs. Bar- 
wick; Florence Chapman, Marjorie; 
Kllie Barrows, Major Clinton; Nancy 
Bowman, Miss Barrymore; Roslyn 
Cohen, Duchess of Devonshire; Sher- 
man Heard, Lord Stanley; Oscar 
Doane, Duke of Cumberland. 

Fraker Once Captured By Cannibals 

Experiences ranging from Indians I It happened that he received accept 

of the American West to head-hunters 
of the Philippines are those of Dr. 
Charles Fraker, who is now head of 
the university's department of ro- 
mance languages. 

Dr. Fraker was born in the town of 
Alma, Colorado, where his father was 
a miner and cowboy. His native town 
was still in the lands of open, un- 
fenced ranges and the Indians were 
still wild and hostile when he was 
growing up there. 

A teacher even before entering col- 
lege, Dr. Fraker started in a country 


school. He then enrolled in Colorado 
College. Before he received his Bach- 
elor of Arts degree from that school, 
he spent some time teaching school in 
the Philippines. 

Tosses Coin For Jobs 
It was the case of a tossed coin 
which took him there. Desiring travel 
and experience, he had applied for 
various positions, among them a job 
with a meat-packing company in 
South America and a teaching posi- 
tion in the Philippines under the 
sponsorship of the U. 8. Government.

The fall issue of the Quarterly will appear early next week. 
This is the offkiaj undergraduate literary magazine: it is published 
by students, and its primary function is to serve as a channel of 
expression for the creative endeavors of the student body. 

But, at the same time, the role of the Quarterly achieves an 
even wider significance. It must, of its very nature, reflect not only 
the talents and the interests of the undergraduates but the general 
level of their cultural achievement as well. If their intellects and 
imaginations lack vigor, or if they display no interest in their 
magazine, its standards will suffer. For this reason we suggest 
that you read carefully each issue of the Quarterly as it appears. 
offer suggestions for its improvement, and contribute articles to 
it when you are able.

ances from these two places on the 
same day, and finding it difficult to de- 
cide between them, Dr. Fraker tossed 
a nickel, and the teaching position 
was the answer. 

While in the Islands, Dr. Fraker 
was an industrial botanist and cura- 
tor of a museum there. He was in 
charge of handwork of all sorts done 
by some 800,000 students in the pub- 
lic schools. Items made by these stu- 
dents were then exported to the 
United States, and one of his most 
amusing jobs there was to sell $5,000 
worth of baby bonnets to U. S. stores. 
Encounter With Headhunters 
While on vacation from his work, 
Dr. Fraker went to northern Luzon, 
where he had the misfortune to get 
in the bad graces of a tribe of head- 
hunters. He found himself being tried 
for his life by them, but was rescued 
by a native chieftain, who had caught 
up with him just in time, and suc- 
ceeded in persuading the tribe not to 
kill their captive. 

This trial, of course, was being 
carried on in the native tongue of the 
tribe, and Dr. Fnaker had the nerve- 
torturing experience of not being able 
to understand what his captors were 
saying and deciding about him, and 
not being able to talk to them and 
offer any sort of defense for himself. 
On this same eventful vacation, Dr. 
Fraker swam across a river by moon- 
light, learning later that the river 
had been full of dangerous crocodiles 
Returning to the United States, Dr. 
Fraker finished college, majoring in 
English and Romance Languages. 
Since that time he has tried a num- 
ber of professions, but enjoys teach- 
ing most of all. He has, among other 
things, worked in mining, farming, 
cattle raising, and electricity. 

Receiving his Master's Degree in 
Romance Languages at Harvard, he 
went on to get his doctorate there in 
Romance Language Philology. 

Before coming to the University 111 
1932, he taught at Colorado College, 
Harvard, and Northwestern. 

An Accomplished Linguist 
Dr. Fraker has studied a great 
many languages, and is able to read 
and understand several. He is able t<> 
■peak Spanish as fluently aa English. 
Dr. Fraker and his wife live oil 
Cosby Avenue Mrs. Fraker was bon. 
in Puerto Rico of Spanish parents. 

Except for two sisters, all her rehv 
tives live in Spain. She is now teach- 
ing Spanish at Amherst College. The

Harry was just plain Harry, a good 
fellow to have around to sharpen up 
a poker game. We got downright 
mild about Harry just like everyone 
else did, and we like to refer to him 
as "Stud" Truman in our more tender 

But it took Life magazine to put us 
wise to this Dewey chap. Wo slwaya 
thought that he was a little cold and 
aloof with just a trace of scorn for the 
masses lingering around the ends of 
his mustache. Then Life gave us an 
entirely new slant. 

Way back in the spring it started 
referring to him as just plain "Tom" 
A little later it showed us a picture 
of "Tom" staring affectionately over 
a fence at a bull, and the bull had that 
humble look about him which showed 
that, he had met his master. Right 
then and there we knew that "Tom" 
was our man. 

We also like the way he runs his 
Campaign We got a suggestion of 
what it would be like when the boya 
got together in the backroom at the 
Republican convention in June. Cigar- 
ettes, cigars and pies were ruled out, 
and when the reporters rushed in 
after it was all over to get the usual 
story on the smoke filled room they 
found no smoke. There was only a 
faint aroma of Sen-Sen lingering in telephone 
the air. . . 

Since then Dewey has kept his 
speeches on a high moral plane. He 
has admitted frankly that he is all 
for virtue and doesn't give a damn 
about vice. On top of that he has 
hinted broadly that the peace we arc 
presently enduring is the best thing 
that has happened since the war. But 
when we heard that he was in favor 
of lots of unity and this idea of the 
States being United wasn't so bad 
after all, we were really overwhelmed 
with emotion. 

We stood there our eyes full of 
tears listening to him, and we didn't 
evan notice that our glasses were 
tipping over so that the beer was 
spilling out on the table. 

Truman's campaign has been a 
more slambang affair. He started it 
off a couple of months ago when he 
stuck out his chest like Sherman and 
declared he was going to "give them 
hell." Then he proceeded to lunge out 
with left jabs and right crosses often 
KO'ing his own backers, and, in gen- 
eral, having a whale of a time for

the staider sedans are only fair sec-

convertibles mark a standard of their 
own in social life. It is notorious that 
woman, normally modesty personified, 
gets a powerful bang out of riding in 
a convertible. Whether this is due to 
a sensuous pleasure in having the

that she can smile smugly at female

At its regular meeting on Thurs- 
day, October 21, the campus amateur 
station, W1PU0, sent out its first

key. After sweating out a few opera- 
tional difficulties, contact was made

Spurts on this campu.-, during the past two seasons, has undergone a 
period of deterioration which we feel niu.-t be called to the attention of those 
concerned. The record speaks for itself. Since 1947 the football team has *r< 
five, lott s.ven and tied one, with still three games remaining in which the 
Redmen are the decided underdogs. The basketball scoreboard is even worse. 
During 1946-47 the hoopsters ended the season with a 4 and 12 record. Last 
year's final tally was even more unbelievable: two wins-fourteen losses. Ami 
sixteen games a year is not an impressive or rough schedule for even the 
smallest colleges. In comparison, Devens plays 11 games per season Th. 
baseball, swimming and soccer teams are no exceptions. Their records an 
hardly outstanding. 

Hut it is basketball and football with which we are mainly concerned 
They are the sports that make or break a college's name, and it's about tin.e 
this university made its sports name known. 

If the murmurs heard around the campus are true in regard to the two 
teams, and there is reason to believe they are, someone is bound to say ir. 
regard to these murmurs, "armchair coaches" Hut can armchair coaches be 
wrong in SO great numbers? Can the dissatisfaction expressed and just hinted 
at be ignored, while expecting the student body to have faith in the tean - 
and the teams faith in themselves? It doesn't seem probable. 

Whether or not this downward trend is permitted to continue is a prob- 
lem for the student body, the faculty, the administration and the Alumn 
Athletic Association. It is our ardent hope that they will look carefully Int 
the situation.

not life, Bob, it's death. And if it's

that preceded the game on Friday 
night. I'll probably never see one 
like it again. There has been noth- 
ing here to compare with it, nor any- 
thing at Devens that I can recall. 
Everyone was out there, gathered 
around the fire. Your coaching staff, 
the faculty, the administration, and 
most important, the students. When 
you're backed like that, you don't 
have to worry. 

It has often been said that a col- 
lege is known by its football team, j 
but what follows is that a football j 
team is known by its coach. Well, i 
coach, last week I made somewhat of ! 
a prediction. I said it wouldn't sur- \ 
prise me if the mother college gave 
her young child a spanking. And it 
wouldn't. But vou had that one thing 

Late in the fourth quarter the 
frosh drove for their only touchdown. p ar k 
After a punt to the UM 35, Benoit j 
picked up fifteen for a first down. 
Baker broke off tackle and it took the 
last Ace defender to pull him down, 
this after a first down on the four. 
Levis made three and then Haker hit 
pay dirt. Gallop converted and that 
was all the scoring. A.LC. took the 
ensuing kickorT and got in a long 
pass and a short run before the game 

triumph for Clough who needs win; 
with only Vermont and Devens t 
round out three years undefeated ir 
dual meets. Incidentally Louie's tin 
of 2.'i:l)9 was 36 seconds better tha: 
his time in the New England's la.v 
vear which were held at Frankl:' 

Booters . . . 

Continual from pOQ4 I 
first goal came as a result of 
a slow moving ground ball which 
a ll appearances was of the routine 
type, but just as Goalie McGrath was 
about to gobble it up, the ball took a 
wierd spin and dribbled into the cor- 
ier of the nets. 

The second Connecticut goal was 

scored on a penalty kick which was 

awarded them when Jack Holt was 

mposed to have committed a dan- 

,,s play when he brought his 

up tOO high in going after a 

ball. The official ruled that a 

penalty kick was in order, but after 

the game a rule book was produced 

to show that a dangerous play merits 

only an indirect kick. 

The UM booters will be seeking 
their third victory Saturday morning 
at 10:30 at the expense of Trinity 
College before a home-coming crowd 
at Alumni Field. 

Wednesday, the Hriggsmen meet 
their arch rivals from cross town — 
Amherst. Last season the Mass. hoot- 
ers topped Amherst for the first time 
in fourteen years so the Lord Jeffs 
will be looking for scalps around Al- 
umni Field at 3:00 pm.

Frosh Dominate Play 
Throughout the contest, which was 
uneven although the score doesn't 
show it, the Maroon and White domi- 
nated the play, both offensively and 
defensively. The little Indians racked 
up 17 first downs to three for the 
visitors, and Baker who racked up 115 
yards himself accounted for more 
yardage than the entire Ace outfit. 
American International did not pene- 
trate Massachusetts territory until the 

final minute when it began heaving) white. Cheap imitation of a Parker 

desperation passes. 51, but it still works. Finder please

Dick Lee w ;i* hit hard <»n his runback 
of the Devena kickoff and fumbled. 

Arnold Pinto, tlu> Chief*i center, re 
covered on the Redman's 14. K Nagle 
Aipoff to McGlory was good for three 

yards, but the attack teemed t<> bog 

down at this point. A fourth down 
pass from Nagle found Jake Larson 
who made s beautiful leaping catch in 
the end /.one. The try for the extra 
point was wide, and Devens led 1 .*i-7. 
The second Massachusetts' touch 
down came early in the fourth period 

on an exchange of fumbles. After 
Marty Anderson carried for 1!> yards 
to the Devens eleven, a fumble by 
Kv Johnson 01) the famous bootleg 
play was recovered by the Chiefs on 
their own 11. Two plays later John 
IfcHanuS recovered a Devens fumble 
on the Chiefs 211. Johnson picked up 
two yards, and a Feinman to I.ooney 
jump pass was good for nine yards 
to the nine yard line. Feinman made 
four yards to the live, and went over 
from the two to tie the score. Ander- 
son's try for the extra point was 
good and the Redmen took over the 

load 14-18. 

From this point on, the Redmen 
just couldn't seem to get the breaks. 
There were three plays in a row on 
which the Eckmen appeared to have 
made substantial ten or 15 yard gains, 
only to be called back on penalties of 
fifteen yards. With only three minutes 
to play, Don Sisson got off a beautiful 
58 yard punt that, coupled with a 15 
yard clipping penalty, set the Chiefs 
back to their ten yard line. 

Interference Aids Chief*» 

From this apparently hopeless situ- 
ation, the Chiefs bounced back with a 
story book ending. A M yard pass 
interference play was called against 

the Redmen, giving Devens a t 
down OR the Uedmen 30 yard line. It 
was then that the Nagle pass bounced 

out of two hands Into the arms of 
Bill Schreiner for what proved t<» be 

the winning touchdown. 

The Uedmen tried desp. nttely to 
come hack in the waning seconds. F.v 

Johnson carried beautifully on the 

bootleg play for '■'>! yards to the SO 
yard line, and a long touchdown pass 
just .-lipped through the outstretched 
arms of Bill I/ooney. 

The entire forward wall hold ad- 
mirably with the work of Big I/./.ie 
Yergeau and Buzz Harrington being 
outstanding For the Chiefs, John

For 30 consecutive days in a recent test, hundreds of men and 
women all across the country smoked Camels — and only Camels— on the 
average of one to two packages a day. 

Every week, their throats were carefully examined by noted throat 
specialists— a total of 2470 examinations from coast to coast. 

And these famous throat specialists reported that they found not one 
single case of throat irritation due to smoking Camels! 

But prove it yourself! In your "T-Zone"— T for Taste and T for 

Throat. Smoke Camels for 30 days. Let YOUR OWN TASTE tell you 
about that full, rich Camel flavor. Let YOUR OWN THROAT tell you 
how mild a cigarette can be! Yes, prove for yourself that there's

In a statement issuer! this week, 
Ted Blank '49, chairman of the Cam- 
pus Community Chest drive, declared 
that this year the campus would see 
"a new type of Community Chest 

Main feature of the drive will be 
the selection by the students them- 
selves of just which worthy projects 
should benefit from the contributions 
made by this campus. To determine 
the students' wishes in this matter, a 
poll will be taken within the next 
week and the students will be allowed 
to select the recipients of campus 
contributions from a list of accredit- 
ed projects. 

As an added attraction of this 
year's drive the committee will spon- 
sor a contest to nominate a "Queen 
of the Campus Chest Drive." In next 
week's poll the students will be asked 
to nominate six girls who will be the 
finalists of the contest. 

Selection of the queen from the six 
finalists will be made during the ac- 
tual period of the drive which will 
be held during the ten day period 
from December 1st to 11th. With 
each contribution the contributor will 
be allowed one vote to nominate one 
of the six finalists. 

Other committee chairmen for the 
drive are: George Rundquist, Special 
Events; Henry Shensky, Solicita- 
tions; Chris Yalmis, Publicity; Re- 
nee Frank, Administration.

teria found good hunting. The boys 

have virtually adopted him again 
and he is once more growing fat on 
their contributions. 

At latest reports, Sidney still more 
than holds his own among canine 
scroungers, both on the hill and at 
Draper. As if aware of his long term 
of service, he nonchalantly feeds on 
the best of fare in complete disdain 
of amateur competitors.

Among many other canine mascots 
on this campus, a sad-eyed, brown- 
and-white spotted pooch named Sid- 
ney holds the distinction of seniority. 
The history of this mutt begins, in 
the memory of this reporter, with the 
58th AAF College Training Detach- 
ment which adopted him as its mas- 
cot in 1943. A loyal follower of the 
58th, the dog remained behind when 
the outfit was dispersed early in 1944. 
In July 1844, however, when the 
A.STRP took over the military man- 
tle on campus, Sidney attached him- 
self to it with as much enthusiasm as 
he had clung to the ">8th. It was dur- 
ing this period that he acquired one 
of the many names he has held. The 
First Sergeant of the battalion, a 
fiery Regular Army man named 
Duffy, aroused the irritation of the 
troops to such an extent that the 
dog was christened "Duffy* 1 in his 

Through the following two years, 
Duffy held on watching the ASTRP 
group dwindle in size and finally dis- 
appear from campus altogether. He 
held on, though, and in the fall of 
1946 took hope again in the return 
to campus of the first of the present 
group of campus vets. 

Sidney, — or Duffy— was again in 
his element. Again he haunted the 
dining halls in search of scraps from 
the tables, and in Greenough cafe-

ermonters Fail To Stop Powerful UM Drives 

By Joe Steede 
Exploding for four touchdowns in the second half, the UM 
tedmeil trounced a favored Vermont eleven, 33-0, last Saturday 
fct Alumni Field. Led by Marty Anderson, who personally ac- 
counted for twenty-one points, the Eckmen delighted an overflow 
Towd in this, the highlight of Home- 
cominf Weekend, by outplaying the 
ermonters in every department. 
The game started out as a slow 
log-eat-dog affair until Russ Beau- 
ont uncorked a forty yard heave to 
|Anderson, who was downed on the 
yard stripe. On the next play Hal 
man smashed into the end zone 
ktanding up. This was the margin 
Redman had before they let loose 
|n the second half. 

Leading 6-0 at the start of the 
kecond half, the Redmen came roar- 
ing downfield to tally again in ten 
days. Anderson scored this one on a 
;>itchout from Lee at the four yard 
irker, but his attempted conver- 
• 'ii was blocked.

Despite the efforts of an invading 
horde of Gremlins, WMUA went on 
the air Monday night. 

The WMUA transmitter was finish- 
ed Friday evening by the engineering 
staff under the direction of Prof. W. 
W. Smith of the engineering depart- 
ment. It was installed without oppo- 
sition on Saturday afternoon. When 
the switch was thrown it was the 
signal for the Gremlins to commence 
the invasion. 

A Grim Afternoon 

Smith's Army counterattacked but 
it was a losing battle that Saturday 
afternoon. The amplifying unit acted 
as a transmitter and developed a half- 
inch spark and couldn't be tuned to 
650 Kilocycles. "It was a GRIMlin 
afternoon," said Prof. Smith. The 
huge tubes in the transmitter power 
supply wen: on and off like neon 

Prof. Smith, however, sneaked into 
the studio early Sunday morning and 
finished the Gremlins one by one 
while they were sleeping. He would 
not disclose his met • u of extermina- 
tion, but we believe that he killed 
them by throwing differential equa- 
tions at them.

Editorial: A Good Answer 

The overwhelming victory of our inspired football team over 
a highly-favored Vermont was the most welcome answer imagin- 
able to the Collegian's question of last week. The team showed 
beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was a powerful squad really 
capable of showing its worth. 

Another significant event during the weekend was the Friday 
night rally, which gave convincing testimony that the student 
body wanted very badly to show their support of the team. With 
a combination of the most enthusiastic student spirit manifested 
in many a moon and the inspired playing of the team itself, it 
would be hard to imagine any other result. 

One incident among many which showed the ease with which 
rumor and sentiment can distort the facts was a sports broad- 
cast this Monday over station WHYN, Holyoke, which stated that 
the Collegian had attacked Tommy Eck for the team's failure to 
win. Such an interpretation was entirely unfair and reflected a 
desire for mere sensationalism. We repeat what was said in last 
week's editorial: we are not out for scalps — we are out for im- 
provement. The rally was strong evidence that the students be-

Home Ec Girls Struggle with Engineering 51

What a conglomeration of terms 
for GIRLS to be flinging around in 
an engineering course! It's like a 
C.I. taking a course in interior dec- 

Well, it really happens! This year 
six females among a class of 20 
lucky men, are striving to make 
their way through Engineering 51, 

The course, suggested by Miss Mil-

department, was advised as a help to 
the girls in their home ec courses. 

The engineering course would follow 
along with the home furnishings 
course, taking up the technical as- 

Nan Ford, Dorothy Gilman, Bar- 
bara Bean, Peggy Slate, Hope Wes- 
cott, and Edith Roberts are the cour- 
ageous girls who are braving the kid- 
ding of the men students and the 
frightening technical lectures by Pro- 
fessor Miner J. Markuson. 

The political home-makers, by tak- 
ing up the mechanics of construction, 
will be able to know just how their 
homes are built — whether the car- 
penter is using good materials in 
the best possible way, or whether he 

is "putting the money into his own 

In one month, the girls have made 
blueprints and have learned to lay 
foundations, along with picking up 
the accepted technical terms neces-

They have been taught to scale 
or to reduce the proportions of a 
building according to a certain ratio.

Over 400 Spectators

The French department's repre- 
sentation of "Pes Folies Mergere" re- 
ceived an enthusiastic approval from 
the audience of more than 400 which 
crowded the floor of the Drill Hall las' 

Saturday night. 

Staged for the purpose of raising 
funds for the construction of a French 
House on campus, the production was 
presented in the atmosphere of a true 
Parisian nightclub with the guests 
seated at tables surrounding a small 
square of floor space which served as 
a stage. 

Refreshments Served

Checks Come In Blank; 

Veterans under the G. I. Hill who 
received blank subsistence checks are 
advised to mail them to The Federal 
Disbursing Office, Room 710, Post 
Office Building, Boston, Mass. with a 
letter asking that the proper amount 
be filled in. 

Robert J. Morrissey, veterans co- 
ordinator, received word from the 
Boston VA office that a breakdown in 
machinery had caused the error. 

It is a federal offense to write any 
amount on the checks, Mr. Morrissey 
added, Veterans are advised simply 
to mail them to the Disbursing Office 
as described above, and the checks 
will be returned when the proper 
amount has been indicated.

"Berkeley Square" Marked Beginning

Dear Editor, 

I would like to take this opportu- 
nity to thank everyone responsible 
for the introduction of our new school 
football song, "Fight On! Redmen!" 

First, and above all, I wish to thank 
our spirited Redmen football team for 
providing the initial spark and mak- 
ing such a song possible. Secondly, I

lieved in the potentia of the team, and the game was certain proof 
of what everyone believed all along: that our football team can 
be a power among small schools. 

Just as the loss of the Devens game itself did not mean utter 
desperation, however, the victory of last Saturday does not mean 
that the millenium in athletics has arrived. It does mean that our 
team has proved itself worthy of continued and enthusiastic sup- 
port from all. Perhaps it took a bad start this season to make the 
squad really show what it has. They certainly did show it, to the 
delight of all— including the Collegian. 

We may only add a thought which paraphrases the exhorta- 
tions of Co-Captain Bob Raymond in the huddles after every U 
of M touchdown during the Vermont game: Don't let up! The 
entire campus is looking forward to the game with Springfield in 
the expectation that they will see a well-played game. And if the 
team shows the stuff they did against Vermont, then the campus 
can do no more than praise them — win or lose. 

Joe Bernard, Roland Reidy, and John 
O'Neil for their constant inspiration. 
Thirdly, I thank Mr. Schabas and the 
band for the introduction of the num- 
ber on so short a notice. And lastly, 
but assuredly, not leastly, I wish to 
thank our "Statettes" drill team for 
their inimitable rendition of the song 
at the pre-game rally and during the 
Vermont game.

Statesman Reporter Finds Buddies Are 
Satisfied With Amherst Campus Life 

Where's The Missing Boy? 

The Cidleyian has been asked by 
the Dean's Office to release the fol- 
lowing description of Arthur War- 
ren, an Amherst boy of 14 years who 
has been missing since October 15. 

Arthur Warren is five feet five 
inches tall and weighs 118 pounds. 
He has medium blond hair, medium 
complexion and blue eyes. When he 
was last seen at school October 15, 
he was wearing tan tweed pants, blue 
striped dress shirt, but no coat or

mation as to his whereabouts please

James something for the million as 
well as for the few. Yet of the thous- 
ands who enjoyed Berkeley Square 
on both stage and screen not many 
knew that they were getting the spir- 
it of Henry James in the form of a 
clever adaptation of The Sense of the 
Past, a novel left unfinished at James' 
death in 1916. 

The hero of the story is Ralph 
Pendrel (renamed Peter Standish in 
Berkeley Square), a young American 
deeply devoted to the culture of the 
European past. In his quest for the 
spirit of previous ages, he gets lost 
amid the harsh realities of twentieth 
century New York. 

Suddenly inheriting a fine old 
house in London, Ralph Pendrel 
crosses the Atlantic to take posses- 
sion of his property and study his- 
tory over there where most of it was 
made. He steps into his old house and 
disappears right into the long dead 
past; he remains his twentieth cen- 
tury self, but steps into the environ- 
ment of an earlier London and the 
existence of an ancestor who died 
generations before. 

Once he takes his place among the

tich appeared in the STATESMAN is- 
sue of October 22, 1948.) 

This Statesman reporter returned 
from the U of M campus a very be- 
wildered and suspicious individual. 
Upon interviewing former members 
of Devens who are now students at 
the mother college, I found that the 
boys like their new home. At first I 
thought that they were being imtimi- 
dated, or forced to say they like the 
Amherst campus, so I tried stronger 
methods, but Larry Bernstein says, 
"Despite the fact that the interview- 
ei is twisting my arm, I like it here." 
Courses Tougher 

John Brickett (and wife Barbara) 
said, "We're very satisfied. Amherst 
offers more, even though the courses 
are tougher." The Bricketts are liv- 
ing in the new communal house 
called Plymouth. 

Tom Smith, "Although I don't have 
time to collect as many butterflies 
here, I find the zoology department 
very efficient, therefore I like it 


Sammy Kaplan said, "1 feel I am 
at a potentially great university. Ex- 
cellent f a c i 1 i t i e s — and women." 

Hummm (could this be the answer?) 
Al Gallasso said, "I like being 
here, because there is a certain per- 
manence about this place. I have a 
regular room, and I know the army 
isn't going to try to take over any 
day when I'm not looking. However, 
I do miss the cordial relations that 
predominate at Devens, which will 
probably never be able to exist here. 
Leo Lerner said, "This place is 
swell. Seriously, I like it here. 
There's much more to choose from in 
the way of studies as well as social 

No Complaints 
Your reporter continued to seek 
out Deven's men in the hopes of find- 
ing someone who didn't like it at the 
Amherst campus when he spotted 
"Little-fatso." However upon inter- 
viewing "Little-fatso" h e replied by 
saying "I like it here. You get a 
big breakfast for 30c, a bigger lunch 
for .jOc and a still bigger dinner for 
70c. Furthermore if you don't eat, 
you haven't paid for the meals you 
miss, but I never miss mine." 

As expected though, all the boys 
said they liked it at Devens too, and 
would not have missed their experi- 
ences there for the world.

men and women of the departed so- 
ciety, however, he develops a true 
understanding of the past. Instead of 
losing himself, he finds himself for 
the first time and adds new dimen- 
sions to his inner life. He now realizes 
that one part of the past, the trm 
part, must be with us always, in the 
present and in the future. Whatever 
is true from the past is not dead but 
rather is something vital to us, al- 
most conscious. 

Ralph works fast back there in a 
previous century and soon gets en- 
gaged to a distant English cousin 
then living in the London house. But 
his fiancee turns out to be essential-

tional. She represents the seeming, 
ephemeral reality — then or now. 

Before long Ralph meets what is 
permanently, eternally true from the 
past — in the form of Nan Pendrel,

Henry James knew that Ralph 
Pendrel's disappearance into th*- 
past symbolizes something that all of 
us live through somewhere on the 
way to maturity. But Ralph must it- 
turn to the present to work out his 
own testing. 

In spite of his former longing for 
the past, Ralph begins to feel a grow- 
ing sense of alienation from the old 
society. Nan alone remains close to 
him. She teaches him what the past 
can teach — the lesson of a love that 
means self-sacrifice. 

The theme of the novel is that we 
must live in the present without ever 
falling into the error of ignoring or 
hating the past. The sense of the past 
that Henry James writes about is 
nothing more than a concern for 
what is permanently true in any cen- 
tury. For Henry James, a devotion to 
the enduring verities of life forms 
the essence of what we mean by the 
continuity of man's history, The basic 
truths — for example, the necessity <■? 
self-sacrifice — remain constant in any 
epoch, and in a way tend to conquer 
time by unifying man's experience in 
past, present, and future.

Coeds Triumph 2-0, 
Down Faculty In 
Field Hockey Game 

An enthusiastic and respondent 
crowd of about S60 gathered to 
watch the co-eds down the faculty 
J-0 last Friday. The two groups met 
in a game of field hockey. Both 
goal* were a result of Cherry 
Heath 'a marksmanship. Inspite of 
<;iiite a few errors made by both 
tiams, the eo-eds, spectators claimed, 
i ayed a better game than last year. 

Many times during the game the 
Faculty had an opportunity to score; 
however the acuteness and dexterity 
! the girls prevented such a catas- 
trophe. Of course the goalie, Jean 
Allison, was responsible for most of 
the faculty's failures. 

I Hiring the game Mr. Walter Man- 
ville suffered a serious mishap with 
the breaking of his glasses; how- 
ever the game ended on a peaceful 

An overabundance of spirit was 

shown, not only by the crowd, but 

also by both teams as they chased 

eagerly up and down the field. To 

further the general appreciation for 

the faculty's cooperation, Laddie

The quartet opened the show with 
a short selection and then followed 
one of the outstanding presentations 
of the evening, thirteen young ladies 
doing the Can-Can. The girls clad il 
brief costumes of orange and black 
were heartily received by the audi-

how can she express in words the 
the various sensations which came 
to her as she felt her head touching 
the ceiling of the car, or as she felt 
the springs tickling her Spine, or 
when her skirt split up the side as 
she stepped onto the running hoard. 

We must also take into considera- 
tion the fact that many of the less 
popular people on campus have 
brought cars up here for the express 
purpose of bettering their social and 
fraternal status. Sometimes, when 
laden with books and weary with the 
burden of classes, we of the "weaker

Grad Student Charges 
Racial Discrimination 

Theodore Adams, Negro graduate 
•student in the university's Ag Ec 
Department, last week became the 
central figure in a controversy in- 
volving charges of racial discrimina- 

The accusation of having discrim- 
inated egsinst negroes was levelled 
Sl William Russell, proprietor of the 
Quonoel Club, by Nelson Jaeger, Pro- 
gressive and De mo c ra tic candidate 
for representative to the General 

Two Incidents Cited 

The accusations are based on two 
incidents which occurred last week 
at the newly opened night club, lo- 
eated on the Amherst road. On Wed 
nesday, Oct. 27, Adams stated he was 
refused service at the club on the 
grounds that he did not hold mem- 
bership in the organization. 

On last Sunday night, Adams re- 
turned to the club in company with 

Mr. Jaegei who had taken an inter- 
sat in the case. 

Concerning the Sunday Night visit 
to the club, last Monday's issue of 
the Daily Hampshire Gasette of 
Northampton published a statement 

bj Jaeger which contained the follow- 

"Mr. Adams was Sgaifl denied ser- 
vice On the excuse he was not S mem 
her. Adam- returned later with Floyd 
Humphreya, a graduate st.ulent at 
Amherst College, and was again re- 
fused service." Earlier in the evening, 

Humphreya had obtained a member- 
ship card in the club. 

Jaeger then charged that "this is 
a disgusting example of the very 
philosophy our country just fought 
a war to eradicate this man Rus- 
sell will change his policy we in- 
tend to fight this case until it is 
w, »n " I'roprietorn Statement 

The Gazette story also fives Mr. 
Russell's conflicting version of what 
happened during Adams' second visit 
to the club on Sunday night. Russell 
maintains that Mr. Humphreys pro- 
duced a membership card and de- 
manded that Adams, as his guest, be 
served. Club Manager Charles Mm

Comments Not Original 

When we do compare notes on our 

favorite lim -standers. we find that 
lack of originality is the Dnsperites' 
worst fault. For example, when are

SOggy toast in the morning, I always 
Bay**, for the 101st time, with hun- 
dreds of the hungry animals left to 
f<'«-d, it is difficult to keep our smiling 
countenances intact. Another of our 
favorites is: "Well, big surprise to- 
night, we're having meat loaf and 
raspberry cobbler." 

According to a recent poll among 

those lucky ones who work at Draper, 
the question, "What is it'.'", with a 
bewildered look at th<- food, is the OM 
most frequently asked. The reasons 
for this have been discussed too often 
elsewhere so we'll skip that for HOW. 
Servers Not Responsible 
It is they who sincerely believe with 
all of their humorous little hearts 
that we not ooly serve the food hut 
decide the menu and eooh the meal as 
well, whom we WOttld, aerioual) speak 
ing, like to enlighten. We want to 
assure them that between our dashes 
from uniform to class sad hack to 
uniform again, we reserve no time for 
such undertakings. 

Then too, contrary to a reeem. ru- 
mor, we do not work overtime mark 
ing all milk glasses with lipstick for 
the following day. This good deed is 
accomplished by those few memberi 

of the weaker sex who remain |oy*l 


phy started to comply with this wish, 
Russell said, but then Adams changed 
his mint! about drinking as a guest 
and demanded a membership card. 
He did not get the card, Mr. Russell 

Saturday afternoon, Russell's Rack- 
age Store in Amherst was picketed 

by some thirty-five persons. Employ- 
ees stated that the picketing did not 
affect sales. Pickets did not take op 
posts at the Quonset Club Saturday 
night, although there were some indi- 
cations earlier that this might occur.

Vermont took over after the ensu-

Booters Edged 2-1 L 00 i„ n g Things Over Ballmen Trample 
By Strong Trinity »*-*-* Leicester J. C. tt-0 

A last period drive failed to net a 
hard driving UM soccer team the 
. , eeuary markers to topple a power- 
ful soccer aggregation from Trinity j 
College, Saturday morning at Alum- 
ni Field. 

After a scoreless first period in 
which the Massachusetts Redmen 
pressed the attack, the Trinity hoot- 
ers ganged up on Goalie Ed McGrath 
in the second c*vnto to notch two de- 
cisive tallies, one of which proved to 
be the deciding score of the game. 

It looked like the Redmen were 
hack in the ball game when Joe Lit 
scored a Massachusetts goal one min- 
ute after the start of the second half, 
but a stubborn and determined Trin- 
ity team staved off all further Red- j 
men attacks to maintain their one 
o;nal margin. 

The UM booters will play host to 
their city-branch, Ft. Devens, in a 
morning game which will start at 
10:30 on the Alumni Field pitch. The 
same is apt to be an interesting af- 
fair as the Briggsmen will be out for

ens team last season.

The storm, which swarmed through 
the Athletic Department, with this 
column (last week) as its vortex has 
naturally come to my attention, and 
to the attention of many others. Now 
some are saying, after the swamping 
Vermont took Saturday, that I was 
wrong. But I doubt it. 

I could easily apoligize for lu>.t 
, week^ column, but I feel I have noth- 
ing for which to apologize. If I im- 
plied that the team lacked spirit, I 
think I was proven right by the very 
fact that they played their hearts out 
on Alumni Field last week, in a show 
of power that has heretofore been 
latent. If I implied that they were not 
playing because of lack of faith, 
maybe I was right there also. And if 
my column made the team mad, 
which I hope it did, then it served a 
very primary purpose: to make the 
team a fighting mad, spirited bunch 
of the grand players they are known 
to be, who could go out on the field 
and win for themselves and their 

If I made Tommy Eck angry, then 
at least I hope he knows there was 
nothing personal in it. If anything 
we said had even the smallest part 
in Saturday's victory, then we can no 
more than be proud and happy. 

Whatever inspired that second half 
show of power and fight, I hope such 
inspiration will be forthcoming next 
week and the week after. Everyone 
on this campus is hoping for, and be- 
lieving in, the possibility of a Spring- 
field and Tufts victory for us. 

On behalf of the sports staff and 
myself, I want to say that we are 
not sorry for anything that was im- 
plied last week. The results from 
that time on would have proven us 
[more or less right regardless of the 
: outcome of the game, but we are glad 
that you on the team and the athletic 
department, with your latent spirit 
end fight finally exploding, proved .is 
right the u-aij you did. It is my hope 
that you will continue in the same

Exploding for two touchdowns in 
each period, the Mass. U. Freshmen 
huried Leicester Junior College 53-0 
at Alumni Field on Homecoming Day. 
As was the case in their season's 
opener, the Little Indians completely 
dominated the play. Their defense | el& 
completely stopped the opposition, 
while their offense, successful as it 
was, received further bolstering from 
intercepted Leicester passes. 

The first and second touchdowns 
were set up by a 35 yard run and a 
bootleg play by Jack Benoit. A Benoit 
to Pyne aerial paved the way for the 
third tally, Benoit bucking over.

Ity Itarbara 

Along with the other astronomical 
figures which have become I common- 
place part of American life we can 
place the following: 6500 loaves of 
bread, 13,000 pounds of meat, 30,000 
pounds of potatoes, 31,000 quarts of 
milk, li.OOd pounds of butter, 33,600 
eggs, 4,lili(l pounds of sugar, 1,000 
pounds of coffee. 

This is the amount of food con- 
sumed monthly by the 1500 students 
eating at Draper, Butterfield, and 
Greenough cafeterias. 

Congestion Problem 

The food consumed, however, is but 


one of the problems. With students 
allowed to eat where they wish, the 
three eating places have had to deal 
with B varying number and greater 
congestion. Mr. Johnson lias requested 
that all students try to stagger their 
meal times to alleviate this condition. 
The new convenience of having 
Draper open until 8:30 a.m. for those 
who have no 8 o'clock classes was 
specifically designed for the same 
purpose. The 12 o'clock classes were 
scheduled with the idea that students 
would eat at 11 o'clock to relieve 
the crowd at noon. 

Many Opportunities 
In American System, 
Says NAM President 

Thanks to the American opportu- 
nity system, unlike any other in the 
world, then- is still plenty of room 
in industry for embryo Henry Fords 
and Andrew Carnegies, Mortis 
Sayre, president of the National A> 
soeiation of Manufacturers, reminded 

over ."5011 students and far ilty mem 
hers Friday in Old Chapel auditori- 


In a short talk sponsored b) the 
Society of Intercollegiate NoetiCS, 
Mr. Sayre stressed the value of our 
Competitive system with its varied 

opportunities for individual advance 
ment, but he warned that the alarm- 
ing tendency of people to split in 
to groups instead of working toward 

a common goal, could only result in 
a general decline in productivity. 

Answering the charge that the 

NAM caters to big business inter 

ests, the speaker pointed out that 

ir.', of the organization's members 
employ less than I Oil persons, and 
that s::-, employ less than ..(Ml per 


Harold Grant introduced Associate 
Professor Morris, who introduced Mr. 
Sayre. Following his talk, Mr. Sayre 
answered questions in I forum dis- 

Situation Will Change 
Furthermore, after the awkward 
situation of trying to predict how- 
many students to count on at each 
meal is settled, the entire planning 
will again be upset by the new dorms 
going up. The cafeterias will have 
to cope with hungry veterans from 
the "Cinder Block" and Mills House, 
now under construction. 


Leicester took the succeeding kick- 
off and started passing. Drake inter- 
cepted and aided by Knight, raced 

4."> yards to score. 

In the third period Benoit ran back 
a Leicester punt 40 yards for a touch- 
down and it was 88-0. Shortly after- 
wards Jackie Pyne intercepted a pass 
and three plays later Pyne took a 
pass from Benoit and raced into the 
end zone. 

In the final quarter Prevey inter- 
cepted another pass from 20 yards j 
out, it took the Little Indians five 
plays to hit paydirt, with Garvey j 
plunging over. The final tally came 
when Prevey intercepted a pass and 
raced down the sidelines 50 yards for 
the score. 

J. V. Soccermen Tie 

The J.V. booters and Suffield Acac 
emy played to a 1-1 tie in a conte- 
which had to be called at the end 
overtime last Friday at Alumni Fielc 

The J.V.'s jumped to an early lea. 
when a beautiful corner kick by Pink; 
Barr was headed in by Castrober: 

Late in the game, however, anotht 
corner kick played by Suffield set u: 
the tying tally. Although the Brigg; 
men threatened during the reguls 
tilt and during overtime, the Suffie 
squad prevented them from tallyir.. 
the all-important score. 

Next Wednesday and Friday, 
booters will play host to Amher 
and Springfield, both contests be!:; 
held at Alumni Field.

Roister Actor Not So Good As Lover, 
Niedeck's Comments Improve His Style 

by Kut h < am arm 

The full beaming lights and the 
beckoning opi-n door of Stockbridge 
Hall would have presented quite an 
invitation to any person nonchalantly 
lounging around the building on the 
evening of Friday, October 22. Hav- 
ing once entered the interior of the 
building this aimless loiterer would 
have been further attracted, as I was, 
to Bowker Auditorium by the noise 
of joyous outbursts and savage growl- 

There would have been revealed a 
glorious, private rehearsal of "Berke- 
ley Square," the Roister Doisters' 
current production. 

Sham Hat tie In Progress 

An immediate survey of the room 
showed other spectators scattered 
among the empty rows. Charley 
Plumer and Dotty Lipnick were smack 
in the middle of the stage monoton- 
ously going over the scene where 
Tom, the family spoiled brat, en- 
deavors to kiss Wilkins, the coquet- 
tish maid. This is sometimes referred 
to as the "sham battle" scene. 

Dialogue concerning the scene be- 
tween Charley and Mr. Niedeck, who 
was directing from «*i chair on the 
sidelines, was in itself worthy of be- 
ing part of some play. It went like 

Mr. N: "Don't be afraid, Charley, 

there's no extra charge for this 

C: "It's just that I haven't done 
it for so long, I don't know where to 
begin." Hee-ha's from limited audi- 

Mr. N: "All right, start again. Now 
nach, not for her throat, but . . . " 
And so it continued until the scene 
was perfected. 

Certainly no one would want to 
miss the opportunity of seeing this 
U M version of B yer versus little 
coy one. 

Properties Not Complete 

With the stage entrances of Doris 
Abramson and Alice Chorebanian 
came the more serious motif of the 
play. Both girls were superb in their 
handling of a difficult English accent. 

Although the backstage crew had 
not secured all the properties, it was 
not difficult to identify three chairs 
placed side by side as some sort of 
sofa. And everyone remembered not 
to walk into the blazing fireplace, the 
space between the velvet backdrop 
and the dressing screen. 

This unexpected prevue of "Berke- 
ley Square" vividly demonstrates the 
skill of the actors, their co-operation 
and willingness, efficient management 
and direction — all symptoms promis- 
ing a successful public performance 
next week.

Campus Chest Drive To Start Dec. 1; 
Last Drive Aided School In Poland 

A new school of home economics 
is gradually taking shape in War- 
saw, Poland with the help of $1,000 
contributed to the Campus Chest 
Drive here last year. 

A representative of World Student 
Relief reports from the College of 
Agriculture in Warsaw that a new- 
canteen has been established to serve 
the 2,000 students of the institution 
and to provide a laboratory for 
studying institutional and communal 

The new school is being organized 
under the direction of Professor Ma- 
rie Gutowska, a member of the re- 
search staff of the University of 
Massachusetts for eight years, who 
went to Europe last spring. 

Drive To Featurt Queen 

The chest drive this year, sched- 
uled for December 1 to 11, will fea- 
ture the choosing of "Chest Queen" 
from among coeds. Each person who 
contributes one dollar to the drive 
will be entitled to one vote in this 
contest in addition to a voice in how 
the money is to be spent. 

Drive chairman, Ted Blank, has 
announced that nominations for the 
Chest Queen will be taken in a poll 
by solicitors this week. The six top 
coeds will be voted upon during the 
drive, with the winner presiding at 
the Mardi Gras next spring. The 

others will comprise her court, end 
all will receive valuable prises, Mr. 
Blank said. 

Every undergraduate female stu- 
dent, married or unmarried, is eligi- 
ble. The results of the poll will be 
published in the Collegian next week.

Frosh Girls At Lewis 
Struggle With Studies, 
Clothesline Shortage 

\>\l Judy Davenport 

The clothesline problem, of major 
importance at Greenough and Chad- 
bourne, is also in question at Lewis 
Hall. The only available line belongs 
to the janitor's wife and is not for 
the use of the students. In addition 
the line is behind Lewis, but is on 
the tide most frequently used by call- 
ers at the dorm, and the sight of a 
clothesline, continually laden with 
clothes, would not create a good im- 

At present, the girls use portable 
clothes racks which they use either 
in their rooms or in the laundry 
loom. Neither place is exceptionally- 
good for obvious reasons. 

There seems to be no solution at 
hand, and yet, there definitely needs 
to be one. 

Clothesline problems are not the 
least of the frosh coeds' troubles, how- 
ever, studies also offer quandaries. 

Long hours of studying for hour 
exams showed their effects on the 
freshman girls last week. Depending 
on cokes to keep them awake, the 
girls often retired at four A.M. only 
to rise and shine (?) at six to con- 
tinue the vigil. One person, unable to 
keep her eyes open, retired at twelve- 
thirty fully intending to get up at 
five the next morning. When the 
alarm rang, her roommate turned it 
off, and they slept blithely on until 

Then, our heroine, aghast at the 
hour, dashed down stairs with only 
an hour in which to finish three sub- 
jects. At eight, laden with books and 
:-. typewriter, she went quickly up the 
stairs only to trip on her robe and 
start to fall. In the process of regain- 
ing her balance, our coed dropped the 
typewriter, which, incidentally, was 
borrowed, and it fell down a complete 
flight of stairs, (know of anyone in- 
terested in a machine that only types

'"The engineering classes are \ery 
interesting," says Nan Ford. "But 
being girls, we have to have the lec- 
ture explained to us three or four 
times. Prof. Markuson and the men 

in the classes are very thoughtful 
about explaining theory." 

Illustrating the usual female lack

Play 'Berkeley Square' Transfers 
American From 20th To 18th Century 

Roister Doisters Present Play Friday, Saturday 

by ( 'harlt h Plumer 

campus bulletin boards sometime 
prior to the coming election which will 
••ike place on November 22. 

It was pointed out by Vice-Presi- 

oent Phyllis Ford that the constitu- 

aml 18th, in Howker Auditorium, the 

Roister Doisteri will present their 
first production of the '4H-*i:i season 

— John Ralderston's Berkeley Square. 
The story of Berkeley S(/uiiri is as

not contain the clause prohibiting a 
student from holding office in more 
:han one branch of government. She 
therefore asked that the present wom- 
en's Judiciary Board be allowed to 
remain intact. This suggstion was not 
acted upon, but the whole constitution- 
al question was referred to the Consti- 
tution Committee 

since it was pointed out by Senator 
Lee that the student body voted on 
the constitution printed in the Colle- 
gian last spring, and that the consti- 
tution signed by Dr. Van Meter has

19 Candidates Named 
For Honorary Colonel 

Nineteen coeds have been nominated 
for Honorary Colonel of the Military 
Ball by dormitories and Greek houses, 
t was announced this week by Ralph 
\ on Kamecke, chairman of the honor- 
colonel committee. 

Next week these girls' pictures will 
'Ppear in the Collegian. The follow- 
er Tuesday, November 23, the candi- 
dates will be presented to the Cadet 

working man's mind and the drug of 
love. The principal character, Peter 
Standish, is the victim of an over- 
powering desire to possess what he 
considers to be the beauty of the past. 
As an American living in contempor- 
ary London, he despises the twenti- 
eth century age of smoke and ma- 
for investigation, | , . , . , .. . ... 

x v.. o1__a-.I chines and longs for what he believes 

to be the serenity and ease of the 
eighteenth century. 

In a most vivid manner, the transi- 
tion from the present to the past is 
accomplished. Standish suddenly finds 
himself in the person of his great- 
grandfather, arriving from America 
in 1784, and meeting the Pettigrew 
family of Ixmdon. His passport to 
this setting is the memorization of 
the diarv and letters of his ancestor. 

Costello To Get Check 
At Beat Tufts Rally 

Don Costello will be presented with 
a check for more than $200, the pro- 
fits of the benefit dance held last Sat- 
urday, at the Beat Tufts Rally in the 
cage of the Physical Education Build- 

' "rps which will vote in a meeting at I ing tomorrow at 7 p.m. 

Howker Auditorium to select about 
• finalists. 

These finalists will be voted on at 

the Rail on December 'Ard, where 

1 honorary colonel will be selected. 

The student body is invited to <at-

The pre-rally parade will start in 
front of QTV on North Pleasant 
promptly at 6:30 p.m. and will pro- 
ceed past the experiment station and 
to the cage, where Wally Kallaugher 
has the program lined up to start ex- 
actly at seven. 

The rally will be finished in plenty 
Continued on page 8 

Nonetheless, he meets Kate Petti- 
grew, the older daughter and her fa- 
mily, in a maze of bewilderment. 

With a slowly developing and al- 
most terrifying surety, he realizes 
that he cannot escape his knowledge 
of the future— he cannot he a real 
part of what has been! His use of yet 
"unborn" phrases, his unaccountable 
knowledge of the younger daughter's 
birthday gift— these and other inci- 
dents cause fierce reactions from the 
family as time passes, especially in 
the true embodiment of 18th century 
ideals, Kate Pettigrew. 

Rut there is another daughter in 
I the Pettigrew family, Helen— a girl 
belonging to the future as certainly 
as Peter does not belong to the past. 
She understands him and through his 
eyes— "eyes that blaze" — sees both 
the beauty and the horror of the fut- 

Peter Standish comes to love this 
girl -to love her not only as the 18th 
century being, but as the true Peter 
Standish of the century yet to come. 
But can this great love be? Or is it 
merely the love of ghost for ghost? 
Peter Standish is an intruder into an 
age not lightly his; into the Petti- 
grew home of yean ago; into a heart 
he has no right to posse 

This, briefly, is the Berkeley 
Square story. I end it in questions 
purposely that previous knowledge of 
the story might not remove the ele- 
ments of struggle and suspense when 
you attend the play. That Peter 
Standish is an intruder into another 
age is not meant to be a "he all end 
all" conclusion. It is quite conceivable 
that you may have an opposing re- 
action- — a reaction acquired by see- 
ing the story in its entirety on Bow- 
ker's stage. 

Goodman Backs Out 
On Military Ball 

The C of M military department 

has announced that Benny Good- 
man's hand will not be available for

The First Step 

The installation of the new Stu- 
dent Senate last Wednesday night 
marks the initial step in the execu- 
tion of the plans made by those who 
framed our new student constitution. 
Their plans were simply to set up a 
truly representative student govern- 
ment and effect a maximum of stu- 
dent participation in campus affairs. 
The Collegian welcomes the new Sen- 
ate to its task. 

It is obvious, but worth repeating, 
that the next step will be up to the 
Senate and the student body together. 
The Senate has the potential organi- 
zation to knit the campus closer to- 
gether and bring about real coopera- 
tion, both between students and be- 
tween students and faculty. It can- 
not, however, do its part alone. The 
student body must take a real inter- 
est in the work of its government, 

not forgetting that the primary aim 

of its new organization is coopera- 
tion. Every Individual can help by 

letting his Senators know his opin- 
ions on matters before that hotly, JUld 
by appraising each Senator he has 
elected insofar as is possible. It is 
important that good men ami women 
be retained and those who show lit- 
tle interest in their jobs be replaced. 
That was the purpose of the one-se- 
mester term set up by the constitu- 
tion committee. 

The new Senate, like any newly- 
constituted organization, will face 
problems of organization and direc- 
tion at the beginning. The student 
body must give it a chance to show 
what it can do, and actively help it 
in every possible way to fulfill its 


WHYN Was Right? 

WHYN, Holyoke did not distort 
facts. They reported the facts as 
stated. "This is not a criticism of in- 
dividual abilities of any member of 
the football or basketball teams, but 
of the overall performance of both 
teams and coaches." Leaving out the 
parenthetical clause, this says, "This 
is a criticism of the teams and 
coaches. That is an attack. 

"So far, the information reaching 

our ears indicates that coaching of 

our team has not been what it should 

he." That libelous statement is an 

attack. Are you a rumor-monger or 

do you believe what you print? 

"We are not out for scalps — we are 

• for improvement," Improvement

and libel which sharpen 

the hatchet.

Medical Attention Needed 

Dear Editor: 

I have been watching football 
games and other athletic contests for 
the past few years and one thing in 
particular has been noticeable, prin- 
cipally because of its absence. Even 
though we have a competent medical 
officer on the bench he seldom ex- 
erts himself to the extent of getting 
off the bench whenever a need for 
medical service or advice arises. I 
admit that most of the athletic 
bumps and bruises are routine in 
nature and that they may be cared 
for by a competent trainer. 

However, there is always the pos- 
sibility that an injury of a more 
serious nature has been sustained. 
With this situation always possible. 
it does not seem unreasonable that 
the medical officer be required to 
make a prompt inspection and super- 
vise the removal or treatment of the 
injured player. 

In the Springfield game, an in- 
jured Massachusetts player lay on 
the field for several minutes before 
the medical officer decided to get off 
the bench and investigate. This situa- 
tion was extremely disturbing in 
view of the prompt attention that 
tve.y Springfield player received 
from a trainer and medical officer. 

These two men actually sprinted 
to the injured man and took proper 
precautions. Our trainer gets on the 
field promptly, but it seems to us 
that it WOUid not be expecting too 
much to ask th • college physician to 
jet to the injured player as soon as 

lie con hi also. 

UM Can Compete In 

The U of M hai recently been in- 
vited with 325 other colleges and uni- 
versities to compete in the 1949 Na- 
tional Intercollegiate Bridge Tour- 
nament, the tournament committee 

announced recently. 

Only undergraduates are eligible 
tc play in the duplicate Contract 
Bridge event for the title and silver 
trophy. A preliminary round will be 
played by mail in February, and the 
1(5 highest ranking pairs will meet 
for the face-to-face finals on April 22 
and It at the Drake Hotel in Chi- 
cago, where the players will be 
guests of the Intercollegiate Bridge 
Tournament Committee. 

To insure representation of all 
parts of the country in the finals, 
the country is divided into eight 
zones, with two pairs from each zone 
qualifying for the finals. 

The Committee requires the ap- 
proval of the dean before a college 
may enter the tournament.

Registrar Lanphear U Of M Graduate 

Thirty odd years ago one of the big 
wheels on this campus was a student 
named Marshall Olin Lanphear, better 
I known as Whitey. 

Today, minus the nickname, known 
by the more cryptic official signature 
M. 0. Lanphear, the former student, 
as registrar of this rapidly growing 
university, is still one of the campus 

Mr. Lanphear, (who was born in 
Windsor, Conn.) , will be fifty-four 
years old two weeks from tomorrow. 
Exactly half of his lifetime has been 
spent in continuous service of the 
school as a teacher and administra- 
tor, beginning when the university 
was known by its original name, 
Mass. Agricultural College. 

In his days as a student, the years 
1914 through '18, the registrar took 
a turn at most of the important un- 

In the fall of 1914 when he en- 
rolled as a freshman, Stockbridge 
Hall was only in the first stage of 
construction and many of the other 
buildings now in use were still in 
the distant future. The student body 
numbered l>10 and undergraduate 
customs and traditions were enjoying 
their last years of real popularity. 
Competition between classes was live- 
ly; the annual freshman-sophomore 
rope pull was a notable event, which 
involved several weeks of prepara- 
tion by both classes. The Juniors and 
Seniors were sponsors for the lower 
classes, whose teams of sixty men 
trained diligently for several weeks 
for what was then an important con- 
test. This ami other customs began 
to decline after the first World War.

month early because of the war, and 
most of its members joined the army. 
Mr. Lanphear received a commission 
as a second lieutenant of infantry 
and was in training at Camp Dix, 
N. J., when the Armistice was signed. 
A month later he was discharged and 
in January, 1919 he began his teach- 
ing career as an instructor of Agri- 
culture at Mt. Hermon, a prep school 
in Northern Mass. 

H e left Mt. Hermon in the fall of 
1919 and spent the next two years in 
sales work for the American Agricul- 
tural Chemical Company of Connecti- 
cut. In the fall of 1921, he returned 
to the school, which was then Mass. 
Aggie, as an instructor of Agronomy. 
He found the one notable change 
which had taken place on campus 
during the three years since his 
graduation was an increase in the 
number of coeds who hadn't begun 
to arrive in large numbers until 

Mr. Lanphear was appointed As- 
sistant Professor in 1924. During the 
summer vacations of the four years 
1922 through "2-">, he and another 
worker completed a survey of the 
soils of four of Massachusetts' largest 
counties, which was the first compre- 
hensive cataloging of this useful in- 
formation. He recalls that 1924 was 
the year when the old chemistry

Married 1926 

In 1026 Mr. Lanphear married 
Miss Hazel White, who was formerly 
the Dietitian at Draper Hall. The 
couple have two children, Robert, now 
a junior at Worcester Tech, majoring 
in Mechanical Engineering, and 
Frederick, a student in an Amherst 
Grade school. In that year also, the 
registrar received his Master of Sci- 
ence degree and In addition to his 
teaching duties, he became assistant 

dean of the college. 

These years and those of the thir- 
ties saw an increased activity in con- 
struction on campus financed through 
the joint efforts of the alumni and 
the legislature. As a member of the 
Alumni Association, the registrar 
was connected with the construction

'Piddles,' The Pi Phi Puppy, Adopted 
By Enthusiastic Sorority Sisters 

11. 194h 

Saved From Drowning 
By Sympathetic Student 

By Janet Miller 

Ever fed a three-week old pup, 
whose legs are so wobbly he can 
hardly stand up? Or, better yet, have 
you ever tried to housebreak a small 
bit of caninimity so tiny that a shoe- 
box is almost too big for., a bed? 

Take a word of advice from this 
reporter. It's a problem! 

With a bottle, he's worse than a 
drunkard. He requires a 1-o-n-g swig 
(of warm milk) every two hours or 
BO. And it's quite a process to teach 
a little mite of fur that there is a 
time and place for everything that 
there are certain things that are not 
to be done on a good rug, but that 
should be taken care of outside — 
when our small friend's every in- 
stinct tells him that the rug is so 
much more comfortable. 

If you were Pi, Idles, the Pi Phi 
pup, fondled and caressed, oohed ami 
shed by sixty admiring females, 
wouldn't you have a tendency to he 
more than a little spoiled? 

The midget brown canine, found in 
lielchertown, on the verge of being 
drowned by his owner, was rescued 
with two of his brothers by three col- 
lege men, who were eager to save the 
pups from a watery grave. Bringing 
the homeless dogs back to campus, 
they gave two to private owners. Pid- 
dles was greeted enthusiastically by 
Pi Phi, and immediately stepped into 
the role of the sorority's mascot. 

A week ago, when he was formally 
introduced to the girls, the pup broke 
up a chapter meeting. Gone was the 
order of the evening as the Pi Phis 
rushed to surround and admire the 
lovable brown creature, which bears 
a remarkable resemblance to a goph- 

Three weeks old now, Piddles, 
whose name is a variation of the self- 
explanatory Puddles, has his own bed 
in one of the girls' rooms. His hum- 
ble abode is a carton lined with a 
blanket willingly sacrificed for the 
new visitor. 

The hungry pup consumes nearly a 
four-ounce bottle of warm evaporated 
milk every two or three hours. Sym- 
toms of the little fellow's enormous 
appetite are marked by intense 
scratching and clawing noises, plus 
shrill squealing sounds accompanied 
by the appearance of a little black 
nose peering from the box. 

The Pi Phis are often awakened in 
the small hours of the morning, 
•'ised by the squeaking noises of the 
new addition. Someone who isn't too 
sound a sleeper patiently stumbles 
down to the kitchen to heat the bot- 
tle. Within one week, Piddles has 
nk so much milk that the mid-sec- 
tion of his body drags on the floor, 
interfering with any attempt at walk- 
ing or balancing. 

The liking between Piddles and the 
sorority house seems to be mutual. 
The Pi Phis love the pup because he 
is something new and different 
around the house. And Piddles, with 
a mischievous look about him, ap- 
pears to be thinking what a distinc- 
tion it is to be the first canine mem- 
her of Pi Phi.

New Wildlife Textbook 
Authored By Trippensee 

Dr. Reuben E. Trippensee, profes- 
sor of wildlife management at the 
University, is the author of Wildlife 
Management, a new text book, re- 
cently published by McGraw-Hill. 

The book includes chapters on the 
effects of environment and disease 
on the wild animal population. The 
life histories of important game ani- 
mals of North America are also dis- 

Wildlife Management is intended 
to be a source of information for 
sportsmen, sporting clubs, and ad- 
ministrators of both government and 
privately owned land tracts in the 
New England area. 

Dr. Trippensee, who has been pro- 
fessor of wildlife management at the 
U of M since 1936, is a graduate of 
Michigan State College. He received 
his Ph.D. in forestry and wildlife man- 
agement from the University of 
Michigan in 1934. He was then in 
the U. S. Forest Service for two 

Although he has written numerous 
articles on wildlife in scientific jour- 
nals, this text, the product of 12 
years of research, is his first full 
full length book. 

Physics Building 
President's Horse 

I'll Clan Tall,, 

Yes, as the oldtimers tell us, the 
President used to park his horse near 
the apparatus room in the Physics 
Building. Even today. Dr. Ross says 
then- are times when you can still 
detect a faint aroma of stable on a 
clear day. Built in 18K7, one of the 
original buildings on campus, it has 
lived a varied life. 

First used as a botanical museum 
it later became the President's office, 
no doubt to the pleasure of his horse. 
The Physics building has been used 
as Registrar's Office and Trig classes 
once were held there. Those uncom- 
fortable benches, fellow sufferers, 
have been occupied by many students, 
some of whom are now on the Ad- 
ministration. Mr. Robert Hawley had 
seat (51 and Mr. Walter Hodge and 
Mr. Richard Fessenden also walked 

Has Varied Past; 
Frequent Visitor 

through those famed portals. 

If you are ever Worried about 
things falling off the shelves at the 
back of the room, console yourself 
with the fact that only once has 
something fallen off and nearly- 
killed a person. 

The old building boasts many ad- 
vantages. Members of the physics de- 
partment proudly state that, while 
the front basement lab is 100 F and 
ice is forming in the Sophomore lab 
at the rear, the average temperature 
of the building is nearly a perfect 
normal. During the hurricane the 
building didn't lose a shingle, yet 
every time a door is shut it shakes 
the very timbers of many an illustri- 
ous ghost. 

The present occupants have had 
fun in it but they hope to get oat of 
the "old barn" before it becomes ma- 
terial for a whopping big bonfire. 

Sig Ep Rebuilding 
Campus Chapter 

A swift reactivation is taking 
j Hace within the Mass. Alpha Chap- 
ter of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity 
s 'g Ep, during the war, lost most 
its members si did most of the 
fraternities; however, after 
n-T Day not many of the brothers 
fame back to school. As a result, the 
was sold in 1946, and the 
bership dropped. This fall, how- 
• with the advent of S6 Devens 
tr *nsfers into the fold, things are 
>Hg up. Sig Ep has S6 pledges, 

S members, and a number of pro- 
spective freshmen pledges. 

The present home of Sig Ep is at 
461 North Pleasant St., where it oc- 
cupies one room, rented by Ed Canty, 
acting president. Sig Ep has ap- 
pointed a committee to make inquir- 
ies as to a permanent residence near 
campus, and several possibilities 
have been discovered. 

On Thursday, October 28, a group 
of pledges, brothers and freshmen 
enjoyed a rush party held at the 
"Rendezvous" Roadhouse. Other par- 
ties are planned for the near fu- 
ture, among them being a dance 
which is to be held on campus. 

Regular meetings are held Mon-

Field (ioal Attempt Fails 
The Gymnast, failed to capitalize 
on a third scoring attempt in the first 
period when a field goal attempt from 
the 12 yard line was blown off to the 
[eft by a strong wind. This was the 
third straight time that Keith King, 
the Springfield ace placement artist, 
failed to score with his toe. The field 
goal try was set up by a pass inter- 
ception' by Hammer, the Gymnast 
guard, of a partially blocked pass on 
the 15 yard line. He gave the ball 
to D'Agotsino on a lateral pass, and 
D'Agotsino carried to the Redman 
nine. The Redmen dug in and held, 
forcing the field goal try. 

Redmen Line Strengthens 
The Redmen played much better 
ball in the second and third periods 
holding their own against the strong 
Springfield line. Hal Fienman ripped 
off a 21 yard gain, and Strut Struz- 
zier.. and Dick Lee picked up small 
gains at times, but the Kckmen just 
could not seem to gain consistency 
egsinsl the powerful Gymnasts. They 
aeemed to have better luck with their 
straight running plays than they did 
with their end around .and flip-off 
plays, because an alert roving half 
back came charging in on the grid- 
sters and broke up the trick plays. 
Late in the third period, the Gym- 
nasts began to roll again. Ed Stroec- 
kel was responsible for the third 
Springfield touchdown. He hit big 
Rollie Chinatti, the left end, with 
passes for two consecutive first 
downs, and he carried the ball over 
from the one yard line on third down. 
Again the kick was no good. The 
fourth touchdown came when Roger 
Woodburn blocked a kick and ran 
eight vards for the score. This time 
King made good on his conversion. 
The last score was set up when Lee 
fumbled for the Redmen on his own 
thirty yard line. A 15 yard pass from 
Friburg to Conway in the end zone 
made the final score 31-0.

Displaying a brilliant and inspired 
brand of soccer, the I'M VSTSitj 

booters administered the whitewash to 
their arch rivals, the Lord Jell's of 
Amherst, in a contest which W8S an 
exciting battle right down to the last 
second of pis) ■ 

The Amherst aggregation invaded 
Alumni Field List Wednesday with a 
frustrated desire to iick the l'mver 
sity hooters who had beaten them last 
.mi for the first time in fourteen 
yean. However, it wasn't long after 

the game got underway, that the 

Jeffs realized that th.y were up 
against some keen competition from a 
fast and clever I'M combine, who 
were determined to make it two in a 
row over the crOSS-tOWn opponents. 
Conlest Stalemated 
For the most part the name was 
evenly played with both teams getting 
their share of scoring opportunities. 
In the first period Amherst had the 
edge in the shots-taken dept., hut 
they were unable to drive one hy 

Goalie Ed McGrath who played « 

beautiful game in turning in his first 
shutout of the current campaign. 

The second and third periods saw 
the Redmen pushing the attack into 
Jeffmen territory in vain attempts to 
dent the Amherst nets. 

Tetrault Scores Only Goal 
After three stalemated periods it 
began to look like the game would 
I end in a scoreless deadlock, but fate 

The I'M varsity soccer team ad- 
ministered its second straight shut-out 
victory, last Satur.lav morning at Al- 
umni Field when th.y overpowered a 
game Ft, Devens team. 

The Briggl Booters, fresh from a 
shut-out victory over mighty Amherst, 
were just tOO much for their "city" 
cousins, as they oiitpassed, out ran, and 

outplayed their opponent.-. The Red 

men spent most of the afteri n 

shooting at the Devens goal and it 
was a .mall wonder that the score 
wasn't much higher. However, the 

hard playing Devens team did break 
through the Redmen'. defense on oc 
casion and Goalie Ed Mctirath was 
called on to come up with some note- 
worthy saves, in turning in his sec- 
ond shut-out of the week. 

All three Mass. goals came as the 
result of some nice passwork. On the 
scoring end Joe Lit, Red Winton 
and Bob Tetrault. 

stepped in to give the Redmen just 

the break they needed, when with 
only ten minutes remaining in the 
last quarter, I penalty kick was 
awarded to the Redmen on an Am- 
herst foul in the penalty area. UM 
center halfback Bob Tetrault was 
called on to take the penalty kick 
and his successful boot proved to he 
the winning goal of the game. 

30-Day test of hundreds of Camel smokers revealed j 


{Not a single case!} 

rom coast to coast, the reports were the 
une: Not one single case of throat irritation 
due to smoking Camels!

Collegian President Poll Is Best Way 
To Choose Right Wrong Candidate 

By Vin Leccese 
[Miah, Sibyl N«>.>tra«lamus; down 
through the ages great aeeri have 
come forth to foretell the future. To- 
day, a new star waddle* across the 
horizon of prophecy the CoUegian 
poll. No Other prophet ran claim with 
such impunity, "We are always right 
h, cause we are always wrong." 

The Collegian can smugly point out 

the example of the presidential poll 
which "Triumphant Tom" 


low. It isn't cricket. Therefore the 
CoUegian adopts this unique method 

Of circumlocution, selecting the ob- 
vious winner and then "Electing" the 


Methods Involved 

Naturally, to select the right 
wrong candidate takes much thought 
and collection of facts. The Collegian 
works thus. Take the recent election 
for example. First, the nation had 
shown its impatience with the Demo- 
cratic Party by electing a Republican 
Congreai. Second, the Democratic 

Party had split three ways, between 
Truman, Thurmond, and Wallace. 
The Democratic Tarty bad about giv- 

prophet would descend so I en up and was talking of the »l 

come-back. Warren, the Republican 
vice-president choice, was one of the 
most powerful men in the nation, and 
he together with Dewey controlled a 

Bolid block of electoral votes in their 
OWn states. Who COUld help but be 
the winner'.' Truman obviously. 
//,„,,-. / '/. el '<"' Cos* 1 1' Point 
The same reaaoning can be applied 

in the ':V2 election when the Colhaian 
picked Hoover over PDR. Hoover and 
his administration was blamed by 
millions to be the cause of the depres- 


vs helmed "HopeleU Harry" 2-1. Of 
COUrie to the rank amateur in the 
mystic field this may seem to be an 
horrendous faux pas. Actually to 
point the finger in the right direction 
would be too ciass for words. No re-

Collegian "Free Press" 

••The Collegian ia a fire and re- 
B ible p • i sponaible because

,r .»f journalism and adviser to 
the Collegian, told students trying 
out for the college paper last week. 

"There has never been any censor- 
ship of the paper, and the faculty ad-

See how the CoUegian works it? 

Now that you readers are profic-

and good clean educational fun for 
you. and to try to promote the 
of journalistic morale that makes a 
first- rate newspaper." he added. 

Pointing out that the editor of the 
paper is responsible for opinions 

"It takes a pood staff to make a 
good newspaper. 1 am sure the pres- 
ent staff hopes it will turn up 
enouph pood newspapermen among 
the competitors so that the staff can 
go on a 40-hour week in the near fut-

Military Ball . . . 

Continued from page / 

After a week of waiting in which 
wires were received from the New 
York "Dorsey date looks good. . . " 
and "Trying to work out Dorsey 
deal," word was finally received that 
Dorsey's contract bad been extended 
at the Pennsylvania Hotel and that 
be would not go on tour, but that 

be available to play the December .'{ 

Based on that telegram, Major 
Parker telephoned New York, said 
that the Military Ball committee defi- 
nitely wanted Benny Goodman and 

his new band, received definite con- 
firmation over the telephone that 
Benny would be available and then 
received a contract from the New 
York booking agency along with ad 
vertising material. Hence the pic- 
ture of Goodman on the front page of 
the Collegian last week. 

The committee is hard at work, 
trying to get another name band for 
the Ball, There are two possibilities, 
Major Parker concluded, and the 
campus will be told definitely next 
week whose brand of music Mili Ball 
dancers will hear. 

Will Improve Reception 

'•Complaints have been niadt that 
Station W'Ml'A cannot be heard in 
many houses on campus," station di- 
rector Wayne I.anghill stated at a 
recent meeting. "Within a week, we 
hope to make a definite improvement 
in the transmission efficiency." 

At present a coupling unit is being 
built to increase reception of the 
week-old station over the campus. 
This will be completed, Wayne said, 
as soon as the help of enough engi- 
neers is made available. 

The unit is such that it will con- 
nect the station to a set of high volt- 
age lines and thus improve the cover- 
age of the campus. The power line 
now in use includes only a small part 
of the University. 

"There are five lines that cover the 
college campus," Wayne remarked. 
"Condensers to be put on the trans- 
formers will carry the current across 
the lines, so that it will not be 

The transformer in South College, 
which blocks the signals at the start 
will be completely by-passed by the 

new device • • • 

A new tape recorder, to be bought 
with funds contributed by the Senate 
will allow WMUA representatives to 

tour the campus, recording events of 
the moment. Delayed broadcasts will 
be made later from the station. 

"With two such devices," Wayne 
stated, "we will be able to cover Mili- 
tary Ball in Northampton, with re- 
broadcasts coming over the station 
within a half hour. While one ma- 
chine is recording, the other will be 
on its way over here to the station 
to be put on the air." . . . 

Concerning the poor reception, 
Wayne remarked, people don't take 
into consideration that the heat from 
the radio causes a shift in tuning. 
Although the station uses a crystal 
to keep as close to 6.">0 on the dial as 
possible, it cannot overcome a limit- 
ed amount of shifting. It is advised 
that listeners tune in slightly to the 
left or right of fi50 . . .

Bob Leavitt New Senate President; 
35 Inducted At Meeting Wednesday 

The constitution of the new Stu- new Senators to begin work right 

dent Government went Into affect last 
Wednesday ni^^t as thirty-live re- 
cently elected Senators were inducted 

In a ceremony at Mem Hall Audito- 
rium. A total of twenty-seven men 
and eight women were sworn into of- 
fice by retiring Senate president, 

John Diekmeytr, after short welcom- 
ing speeches by De*fl Helen Curtis 
and Dean Robert Hopkins, Senate 

After officers had been elected for 
the coming semester, there was a 
short recess in which Dickmeyer 
briefed the new officer! — Pre*. Hob 
Leavitt, vice-president Rhyl Ford, 
Sec. Helen Mitchell, and Treas. Bill 
C asev — on what would be expected of 
them. Following this, the new Sen- 
ate held its first meeting. 

President Leavitt, in accepting the 
post, stressed the need for reforms 
on campus and the necessity of mak- 
ing up for lost time. He urged the 

away, since the month of October had 

already been wasted. As a starting 

point, lie presented a set of propoaali 

which were later voted upon. 

It was decided that Roberts' Rules 
of Order would be followed at the 
weekly meeting! which will be held 
on Tuesday night to allow full 
Collegian coverage. 

The following measures, recom- 
mended by President Leavitt and in- 
troduced by Senator Clark Kendall, 
were discussed and voted upon: 

(1) formation of a dormitory com- 
mittee to meet with the Maintenance 
Dept. to clear up any problems aris- 
ing in campus dwellings; 

(2) formation of an executive com- 
mittee to prepare measures for pre- 
sentation at the regular Senate meet- 

(3) formation of a Constitution 
committee to eliminate any loopholes 
in the existing document; 

(4) formation of an election com- 
mittee to draw up rules governii. K 
the conduct of future elections. 

All but the measure recommending 
a dormitory committee were passed. 

Since the existing Women's Judici- 
ary Hoard went out of office with the 
coming in of the new constitution, 
and since this document does n<>t pro- 
vide for any judicial elections until 
spring, it was decided to hold elec- 
tions soon for an interim body com- 
posed of five men and five women 
students. Clark Kendall has been ap- 
pointed chairman of the election com- 

A measure to appropriate $H» for 
the purchase of a gavel was with- 
drawn when Phyllis Ford offered to 
extend the use of one of the gavels 
owned by the Women's Student gov- 
ernment Association. 

President Leavitt concluded his 
recommendations by saying, 

"This is drastic legislation, but 
time is all important. All eyes are 
watching the Senate. If we move 
swiftly, decisively, but with caution, 
the University — students and faculty 
alike — cannot help but say: 'At last

School Name Changed '31 

As an illustration of history re- 
peating itself, Mr. Lanphear pointed 
to the similarity between the commo- 
tion which rocked the campus in the 
spring of 1947 and that of 1981, 
when the students petitioned the 
legislature to change the school name 
to Mass. State College. Professor 
Troy of the English department who 
was then a student, was one of the 
leaders in this fight which occasioned 
fully as much interest as did the '47 
campaign for a change to the name 

Mr. Lanphear was named profes-

Roisters Score in Effective I 
Showing of 'Berkeley Square' 

Rich Costumes, Clever Sets, Add To Success 

By Dave Buckley 

All things considered, the Roister 
Doisters treated us to another satis- 
fying production last Friday and 
Saturday evenings, when they pre- 
sented "Berkeley Square" on the 
Bowker stage. But, in order to 
achieve this success, they had to over- 
come major difficulties in a play, of 
■ '.it more than average merit, 
which is now twenty years old and 
aging rapidly. 

At its best "Berkeley Square" is 
tender, evocative, flashing a bright 
humor, and straining after elusive 
truths. At its worst it sags into a 
painful sentimentality and tosses 
feeble affirmations into the wind. 
Plot Spans Three Centuries 

Its plot is simple enough. Peter 
Mandish, a young man alienated 
from the "bustle and efficiency" of 
the present, seeks his enchantment in 
the past. By some strange device he 
wanders back in time to the high so- 
ciety of the eighteenth century. 
There he finds that the people are es- 
-> ntially scheming and coarse under 
their veneer of good breeding. 

Only one girl, Helen, stands out 

beautiful and alone, representing the

and Peter promptly falls in love with

Not 'Just Another Drive' 

When the Campus Chest drive begins itfl solicitations on De- 
cember first, many students will be inclined to shrug it off as 
-just another collection." This drive, however, deserves the whole- 
hearted support of very student. 

The final apportionment of funds collected trom the drive 
has not been definitely settled, but is final allocation will benefit 
fellow students, both here and abroad. What better cause can be 
found than to help young men and women who, like ourselves, 
arc trying to get an education, but are in desperate need of help. 

One feature of this year's drive will be the poll to be con- 
ducted tomorrow by the Campus Chest committee to determine 
student wishes on the apportionment of the funds. This will give 
ill of us the chance, not only to express our opinions on the pro- 
posed beneficiaries, but to suggest any others which seem to de- 
serve aid. The Collegian urges every student to take a few min- 
utes out tomorrow and go to the U-Store to help make this prelim- 
inary decision. 

Another feature of the drive which adds a novel twist to the 
situation is the selection of a Campus Chest queen. There is no 
need to consider such an idea as commercialization of a philan- 
thropic program. Considered in the spirit in which it is intended, 
the contest should add more interest to the solicitation. 

In the end. however, the basic fact to be remembered is that 
it is the solicitation that counts. Representatives will be canvas- 
sing every dormitory and house with the main object in mind of 
reaching all who take a genuine interest in their fellow students. 
When a solicitor approaches you, don't say: "Here's another guy 
who wants money from me." Think instead that he represents 
needy students in this country and abroad as well. And GIVE!

Not A Frat Man 

Dear Editor, 

In the last issue of the Collegian 
there was a list of those students 
who had joined fraternities. The full 
names of the people were not in- 
cluded; instead, their first names were 
abbreviated. Hue to this there have 
been many occasions of branding a 
person a "Greek-man" when he is 
not even associated with one and 
doesn't intend to join, even if it were 

I refer to myself as having been 
mil-branded, in two "frats" there 
were K. Mitchells pledged. My name 
is Mitchell and the initial of my first 
name is R. but I am not one of those 
who were pledged. 

So, to whom it may concern, Ralph 
Miuhell '60, Chadbottrne Hall, room 
309 is not a member of a "frat" and 
doesn't intend to become a member. 
it would be greatly appreciated if in 
the future, that when a person's name 
is mentioned in your newspaper, that 
you use the full name and no ab-

nickname of "Wee Willie" by his

Machmer's friendly, beaming face was 
all that could be seen above the lec- 
tern by his students when he was 
delivering a math lecture. 

This name is given in the friendliest 
way possible because the Dean is one

Dear Editor 

Rumors have been going around 
Amherst that the recent case of dis- 
crimination at the Quonset Building 
was "cooked" up by the Progressive 
Partv for "political reasons". I won- 
der if the people who say this could 
explain just what they mean. # i 

Do thev mean that there really is , 
no discrimination at the Quonset 
Building? If so. how do they explain 
the fact that a week before the test | 
rase when Mr. Adams of the Univer- 
sity was refused service, that two 
parties of negroes were told that the 
membership quota was filled bo they 
could not be served nor become mem- 

bcrs ? 

How do they explain the fact that 
negroes have been turned away with 
the same words at least five known 
times since the 27th when the test 
case occurred'.' 

How do they explain the fact that 
white people nave received member- 
ship cards without question all dur- 
ing this period? Dozens of students 
and townspeople are willing to sign 
-worn affidavits to this effect and will 
offer their numbered membership 
cards as proof. Why, not more than 
ten minutes after Mr. Adams was told 
no more m< mbership cards could be 
taken by the club. Mr. Floyd Hum- 
phries and a friend from the U of M 
were given cards immediately upon 

requt st. 

This claim to a completed member- 
ship quota is clearly false as hundreds 
of townspeople know from their own 

ft must be very disconcermng for 
thoS( pe pie who claim that this is all 
a "nasty plot** of the Progressive 
Party to hear that the manager of 
the club has said openly that negroes 
are not wanted; and to find out that 
the Hadley Police Officer on duty at 
the club last Friday night said before 
13 witnesses that negroes are not to

and also among his fellows of the

"His friendly and sympathetic in- 
terest in all problems of young 
people; on the other hand, his pa- 
tience, wholesome optimism and sound 

assumed administrative duties which 
led him to the position of Assistant 
Dean in 192n. 

Four years later he was made 
Dean of the College and Dean of the 
Lower Division — a position he has 
held down to the present time. 

Without neglecting his duties as

judgment in dealing with their many Dean ne hea( j d the mathematics de- 
trying situations have made him the 

ideal choice for administrator of a 
Dean's office." 

Born in Pennsylvania 

Born in Moselem, Penn., a small 
rural district in Berks county, Janu- 
ary :>0, 188.'}, Dean Machmer was in- 
troduced to higher education at Key- 
stone State Normal School. 

Upon receiving his B.E. degree 
there in 1901, he taught for four 

become members of the club because 
"it's bad for business." He urged that 
the 13 Smith girls picketing the 
"club" be reasonable and see that 
this is a money making proposition 
for Mr. Russell and he can't depend 
on negro trade." He went on to say- 
Mr. Russell has to get his business 
largely from the white people and 
therefore "has to keep negroes out." 

What becomes of the charge that 
this case is a "cooked-up" one now? 
Surely, no one believes that the Pro- 
gressive Party went to Mr. Russell 
and asked him* to discriminate against 
colored people so as to make a good 
case for the "Progressive Party." If 
there is anyone so foolish as to be- 
lieve this then he must also think, I 
suppose, that the "radicals" of the 
19th century persuaded the plantation 
owners to 'import slaves BO as to 
make B good case for the abolition- 

The charge is a ridiculous one. It 
the Progressive Party "thrives on 
trouble" as the officer at the Quonset 
Building said to me, then it should 
be an easy matter to defeat our pur- 
poses by' stopping discrimination. 
When everyone regardless of race, 
creed or color is given equal treat- 
ment at the Quonset Club and the 
Lord Jeff Inn and all the barbershops 
and every other place in town then 
the "trouble" will cease. 

Let's not argue about what our pur- 
poses are but let's all prove that we 
are opposed to discrimination by do- 
ing something now. We members of 
the Progressive Party don't want a 
monopoly on the credit for fighting 
for what both Mr. Truman .and Mr. 
Dewey pledged themselves to uphold. 
Claiming that the other fellow is 
doing a good thing for bad reasons is 
no excuse for one's failure to do the 
good thing at all. I urge that every 
organisation in town which claims to 
be in favor of democracy and equality

Student Picket Line At Quonset Club 
Protests Alleged Discrimination 

The three week controversy over a 
question of alleged racial discrimina- 
tion by the Quonset Club flared again 

last Saturday night when a picketline between now and next Tuesday when 
of about :«i persons, including several 
U. of M. students, formed .a protest 
line in front of the night club located 
on the Hadley-Amherst road. 

This is the second successive week- 
end the club has been picketed. Stu- 
dents of Smith and Amherst colleges 
and two members of the Smith 
faculty were among the group, which 
paraded for several hours.

Many students may wonder just 
why the girls ever deserted Mutter-

hate to say it . . . the reason was 
bulging calf muscles! Not only bulg- 
ing calf muscles, but also thickening 
ankles and rippling thigh muscles. 

It's a good thing the girls left 
Butterfield when they did, otherwise 
the "New Look" would have been 
introduced much sooner than it was. 

The hill is descended in two ways. 
You can start running the minute you 
leave Butterfield, or you can approach 
the slope at a leisurely walk. The 
results are the same in both in- 
stances ... If your sense of balance 
(l good, you arrive at the bottom

it is not good, some consolation is to 
be found in the fact that there are 
many trees to stop your rolling into

By Ruth Camann 

La Maison Francaise, one of the 
most thriving organizations of the 
university, is perhaps one of the least

Every year those women students, 
who are desirous of acquiring a prac- 
tical knowledge of French, dwell to-

from Sunday evening through Satur-

4th Quarter^urge by Unpredictable Redmen Tiesjumbos 13-13 I 1948 Football Recap 

Beaumont Stars 

Catches By Looney, 
Hall Spark Drive 

By John Oliver 

A fighting Redman squad made a 
thrilling last quarter comeback to tie 
a highly favored Tufts team, 13-13, 
and disappoint an overflow Home 
Coming Day crowd at the Tufts Oval 
last Saturday afternoon. 

The fine pitching arm of Russ 
"Beaver" Beaumont coupled with a 
terrific circus catch by Bill Looney 
exacted the first touchdown, and 
Beaumont'! fine running and passing 
accounted for the second touchdown. 
The picture looked pretty dark for the 
Eckmen as they started the fourth pe- 
riod. Tufts had a seemingly secure 
i:;-0 lead and neither team was gain- 
ing much on the muddy field. 
Circus Catch By Looneij 
Then Mr. Beaumont's arm took 
over After Hal Fienman had picked 
up a few yards to the Redmen 47 
vard line, Beaumont danced back and 
unloosed a beautiful H yard pass 
that Bill Looney batted around on the 
end of his outstretched fingertips 
from the seven to the three yard line 
before he fell over the goal line for 

the score. 

Martv Anderson's try for the extra 
point was no good, but fortunately, 
an offside penalty was called against 
Tufts, and Marty's second try was 
good making the score 13-7 in favor 
Of Tufts. 

Hatch Hall, playing his last game 
for the Maroon and White, made a 
superb catch of an 18 yard Beaumont 
pass to put the Redmen on the Tufts 
2(1 and set up the tying score. Russ 
Beaumont carried to the twelve and 
Dick Lee pounded through to the ten 
and a first down. 

Lee Seer** 
Beaumont, looking for a pass re- 
ceiver, elected to run. and picked up

Tuesday night saw the first official

a large turnout of students compet-

a big job, weeding them out, but Red

Until the floor is down in the Gym,

The 1948 varsity soccer team ended 
a winning season last Saturday morn- 
ing at Medford, when they put on a 
classy performance to defeat a hard 
playing, but outclassed Tufts soccer 
combine, by a score of 4-1. 

Despite a. muddy field, the Redmen 
booters fuctioned smoothly and put 
on a powerful passing attack that 
netted them four goals. The first UM 
goal was booted home by Frank Ku- 
las, a speedy winger who scored on 
a close-in shot after taking a short 
pass from center forward Red Win-

Tufts tied the game in the second 
period when they scored on a pen- 
alty-kick which was awarded them 
when a Redman fouled in the penalty 
area. The stalemate didn't last long, 
however, as the Redmen scored two 
quick goals in the third period on 
long, hard boots by both Tony Fer- 
reira and center half Bob Tetrault. 
The Redmen missed two golden op- 
portunities to score when they failed 
to capitalize on two penalty kicks 
awarded them, but with seconds re- 
maining in the game, Red Winton 
came through with the fourth UM 
goal when he beat the Tufts goalie 
on a close-in shot.

By Joe Steede 

Last Saturday the UM Redmen wound up a rather dull football season 
y battling a favored Tufts eleven to a 13-18 stalemate. During the past 
mpaign Tommy Eck's charges were brilliant on occasions, but seemed to 
•.ve that uncanny knack of outplaying the opposition and still winding up 
the short end of the score, as the Norwich and Devens games will attest. 
The Redmen nosed out a good Bates team, 7-6 in the opener, but the 
ut >ry light was dimmed when Don Costello was put out of action for the 
ason with a ruptured kidney. Ev Johnson was the spark of this encounter, 
oing 57 yards on tne bootleg play for the only Mass. touchdown. Marty 
: .i.ison's good left leg provided the margin of victory. 

The Redmen were prohibitive favorites in their next encounter against 
• supposedly weak Norwich Cadets. Throughout the game the Redmen 
it over and through the Norwich line at will, but untimely fumbles and 
vr> poor officiating gave the Cadets an undeserved 27-19 edge. In this game 
lal Fienman picked up more yardage than the entire Norwich club. 

The following week the Redmen ran roughshod over Worcester Tech to 
e tune of 2<5-7. Three of the scores came in the second half when the Eck- 
railed 7-(i. All hands had a hand in this victory with Gilman, Lee, An- 
eraon and Kenyon doing the scoring. 

Rhode Island State proved a tough nut to crack, defeating the Redmen 

-U. The UM gridsters got off to an early lead on a pass from Fienman 

Hatch Hall who lateraled to Harrington, the latter scoring. In the final 

;tn/.a, after the Rams had tallied twice, the Redmen tied the score by vir- 

B of Dick Lee's five yard sprint. The Rams could not be checked, however, 

ltd came roaring right back to tally the deciding marker. 

The Redmen ran into an inspired Devens eleven the following weekend, 
rid dropped a tough 20-14 decision to the chiefs. Although they were con- 
istently outplayed throughout the game, as the .'144-115 yards gained rush 
idicates, the Devens Chiefs were "up" for this battle and could not be 
enied. After the Redmen had taken a 14-l.'l lead late in the game, a doubtful 
Ml interference was called on the Eckmen's thirty yard stripe. Nagle then 
nunced a pass off the arms of two Redmen defenders into the outstretched 
mi of Bill Schreiner to wind up the scoring. 

It was a rejuvenated Redmen eleven that took the field against favored 
ermont the following week. The Catamounts, fresh from a win over New 
ampshire, took the full brunt of the Baystater's attack. In their best game 
the year the Redmen walloped the Cats 33-0. Tommy Eck's charges out- 
layed the visitors by a wide margin and it was Marty Anderson who per- 
nally led the team, scoring three UM touchdowns. 

The Redmen succumbed to big, tough Springfield eleven 31-0 and the de- 
fat was doubly hard to take for Phil Roth suffered a broken leg early in the 
h- ond period. Springfield scored on the first play from scrimmage and added 
nother five minutes later. Fumbles, seven of them, hurt the Redmen all 

In the season's finale at Tufts, the Redmen, lead by Russ Beaumont, 

,-ercan.e a thirteen point deficit in the finale canto and succeeded in tying 

ie game, 13-13. Beaumont's passing and running highlighted two late UM 

rive* for scores. Bill Looney scored the first one on a circus catch of a 55 

ird aerial from Beaumont. Dick Lee bucked over from the three yard 

■ripe after another long drive sparked by Beaumont and Fienman. Marty 

Aider-son's try for this conversion failed, and the score remained dead- 

fccked to give the Redmen their only tie of the season and a 3-4-1 record.

the eighteenth century with the girl 
he loves or escape from that age 
which he has come to hate ( and leave 
the girl behind. He chooses the latter 
course, but, once he has returned to 
the twentieth century, he rejects his 
contemporary fiancee. The play ends 
with Peter sitting motionless on a 
couch, a paper bearing Helen's epi- 
taph fluttering to the floor. 

Playwright's Meaning Not Clear 

The meaning which the playwright 
intended is not at all clear. Perhaps 
he meant to suggest the need for an 
enduring tradition, the focusing of 
the best aspects of the past, present, 
and future into a rich thread of time. 
Or again, he might have concentrated 
on the tragedy of the man who is 
unable to reconcile himself to the 
spiritual obtuseness of his own age, 
and is so cut off. Both of these ideas 
are hinted at but neither emerges as 
the dominant theme. 

Instead, the author has his hero 
return to the present for reasons al- 
most entirely negative, recoiling, as 
does, from a past which he cannot en- 
dure. And once returned he seems to 
face a future of endless brooding 
over his lost love. 

In addition the play abounds with 
obvious theatrical tricks which serve 
to tighten the moments of suspense 
One must admit however that the 
predicaments in which Peter finds 
himself as a stranger in another age 
give rise to some genuine comedy. 
The audience seized upon these bits 
of comedy with delight, often insert- 
ing laughs where no laughs wen- 
scheduled, as if they wished to take 

strange journey into the past. Doris 
Carbone was well cast as the wistful 
Helen, at times innocent and intense, 
and not altogether lacking in that 
"white fire" which Helen was said to 
possess. Her voice in its high regis- 
ter was an effective foil to the deep- 
er tones of Alice Chorebanian who 
gave an intelligent interpretation of 
the elder sister, polished and worldly. 

An extraordinarily perceptive 
characterization was demonstrated 
by Doris Abramson whose very pres- 
ence on the stage is so reassuring in 
itself. Her portrayal of I.ady Anne 
was nearly perfect, with just the 
right blending of matronly flutter 
and competence, and faint traces of 
I subdued evil lurking around the 

In supporting roles, Charles I'lum- 
mer was especially convincing as the 
gay blade of the period, witty, sneer- 
ing and brutal. And Morns Ankeles 
was equally good as Throstle, the 
very precious dandy who was intent 
on minding everyone's business. 
Effective Costumes and Sets 

The sets and the costumes were ad- 
mirable. Four authentic Queen Anne 
pieces provided a realistic back- 
ground for the action and lent a cer- 
tain substance to a play which tend- 
ed too often to be insubstantial. 

We discovered only two flaws of 
any importance in Friday evening's 
performance. In the last scene, the 
fragment about the Crux Ansata was 
omitted. This was the Egyptian sym- 
bol of Life and Eternity which Helen 
had given to Peter as the most im- 
portant object which was hers. When 
his twentieth century fiancee at-

The Amherst College chapter of 
Phi Kappa Psi fraternity was sus- 
pended from membership in its na- 
tional organization last week for re- 
fusal to depledge negro student 
Thomas W. Gibbs. 

Suspension was made by the fra- 
ternity's national executive council 
meeting at Columbus, Ohio- The ten- 
man council voted unanimously for 
the move; and national president 
Howard L. Hamilton informed Presi- 
dent Greene of the Amherst chapter 
that the suspension was ordered on 
grounds of "unfnatemal conduct." 

Controversy over the pledging and 
forthcoming initiation of Gibbs began 
last summer at Phi Kappa Psi's na- 
tional convention. At that time, the 
national executive council ordered the 
Amherst chapter to depledge the 
negro student. That order was com- 
plied with but the chapter repledged 
Oibbs a week ago and notified the 
national officers that he would be

Stockbridge Winds Up Grid Season 
With Wins Over AIC And Collegiate 

Supporting the conviction that t!i<- 

Blue and White n of Stockbridge 
always seems prominent in the- sea 

son's' stretch, the team took the Col- 
legiate school over the hurdles with 
a 27-0 victory OH Nov. 

From the opening play it was quite 
evident that our supporting cast with 
Oviwi and Sullivan in the leads was 
going to be hard to beat. 

When the first quarter ended, 
Stockbridge was lending with a 7-0 
score due to the talents of Bob Fcre- 
tien and Ted Siok, both freshman 

One minute of the 2nd and it took 
four first downs for Kelly Ovian to 
register the second tally to make it 
14-0. Now the team was at the height 
of their momentum, and with the 
help of the linemen, Ovian and Sulli- 
van combined in an amazing end-run 
with Sullivan scoring to make it 21-0. 

Vic Oliveria and Red Drake tried 
to rally again in the second quarter, 

hut lost the hall OR <towns at the 1 
yard line. 

Kelly Ovian opened the second half 
with another tally making the score 
21 -P. The majority of the game was 
played by the reserves who are being 
aeaioned up for next year.

The last game of the season, 
played Friday the 12th, saw Stock- 
bridge pitted agninst the A.I.C. f roah. 
The Stockbridge team ended their 
season with a biasing victory of 18-7 
over the city slickers. 

The opening play saw an exchange 
of tactics which saw Ted Siok clip 
the yards off with shifty maneuvers 
to the 15 yd. line, where Kelly Ovian 
took over and ran off the end for the 
first score with Sullivan kicking the 
point 7-0, against the A.I.C.ers. 

At the close of the first quarter, 
A. I.C. came up with a dtermined and 
fast aerial route to tie the score at 

During the second half the won- 
derful cooperation of Ferestien, 
Ovian, Sullivan, S.ok, and Oliveria 
combined with the kicking <>f Pete 
Prankenburg pushed Stockbridge 

ahead to win the game. 

With hut a few hours weekly to 
practice, the team came up at the

"Sweethearts" Presentation 
To Combine Song and Humor 

Tickets Now On Sale For Guild Production 

Ticket sales start in the University Store today for the Oper 
etta Guild production of Victor Herbert's Sweethearts which will 
lay in Bowker Auditorium December 9, 10 and 11. 

Starring Dorothy Morton Billings and Edward Purrington in 
the romantic leads, Sweethearts is shaping up as a colorful festival 
of song ranging from sheer melody to humorous recitations with 
a musical background according to 

1 1 < > r i c Alviani, music department head, 
who is directing the production. 
Among the Victor Herbert hits fea- 
tured are She's Pretty as a Picture, 
Wooden Shoes, On Parade and the 
title song, Sweethearts. 

A light plot gives the operetta con- 
tinuity and creates some hilarious 
comedy situations, Director Alviani 
said. Sylvia, played by Dorothy Mor- 
ton Billings, finds herself the center 
of considerable intrigue because she 
happens to be, without knowing it, 
the Crown Princess of Zilania. 

As a result, the "Laundry of the 
White Geese", run by Dame Paula 
(Mary Wells) with whose six daugh- 
ters Sylvia has been brought up, be- 
comes a mecca for a wide assortment 
of characters seeking romance^ and 
royal favor. Love triangles and mis- 
taken identities complicate things fur-

Judicial Election 
Results Announced 

Results of Monday's elections for 

an interim Judicial Committee were 

announced at the Student Senate 

ing on Tuesday night by Clark 

Kendall, chairman of the Senate 

Election Committee. Five men and 

women were elected by the stu- 

body to serve on the General 

Court of Justice until a regular board 

can be chosen in the spring. 

The following were elected to the 
'a Court of Justice: Theodore 
Wank, William Hendry, John F. Mc- 
Auliffe, Alexander Norskey, and Ed- 
mund Struzziero. Those chosen for 
the women's Court of Justice were 
as follows: Mildred Kinghorn, Jean 
Ann Lindsay, Nancy Maier, Nancy 
Miller, And Lois Rubin. Miss King- 
horn was Chief Justice of the retiring 
Judiciary Board. 

The constitutional amendment, 
■*hich authorizes the Student Senate 
n supervise a primary election in or- 
«• r to eliminate all but two candi- 
dates for an office, was not passed 
to the fact that not more than 
ialf of the student body voted 
p the election. Although there were 
trough affirmative votes to pass the 
i i asure, the total vote fell 179 short 
f the 50% amount necessary for a 
gal ratification. Chairman Kendall 
plored the apparent apathy of the 
Students during the elections. How- 
ler, Robert Leavitt, Senate Presi- 
ent, expressed the opinion that "the 
pathy is 'no greater than the apathy 
hat exists in a town election". 
In an effort to garner as large a 
Bt( as possible, the polls were de- 
entralized and a member of the 
nate was placed in charge of each

his prize winning entry. A spokes- 
man for the bureau declined to give 
further details on the big prize be- 
yond saying modestly that "it will be 
the biggest thing the campus has 
ever seen, and that it will keep Mr.

Snow And Students 

To many of ub, tt*e snowtlakes 
Which made their first appearance on 
campus Monday mottling brought 
only the usual thoughts either of 
coming wint«f sports, the inconven- 
ience of wearing cumbersome winter 
clothing, or the beauty of the scene. 
Let us stop to consider, however, the 
thoughts that might be running 
thr-.ugh the minds of other students 
like ourselves at the sight of snow. 

What would a shabbily-dressed, 
shivering Chinese student think of? 
The beauty of the scene, perhaps— but 
probably more of whether or not he 
would have enough winter clothing to 
keep him warm this winter. Perhaps 
„f whether or not his family would 
be able to find enough fuel to heat 
whatever shelter they are lucky 
enough to have— if his family is still 
alive. Perhaps he would wonder if his 
classroom would be warm enough for 

him to concentrate on his studies 
! without shivering. 

These are real and important con- 
siderations for thousands of students 
our own age in foreign countries all 
over the world. Many of them have 
no time to think of anything but the 
bare necessities of food, clothing, and 
shelter. To whom can they turn for 

They can turn to us, in part, 
through the World Student Sen-ice 
fund, which will receive a part of the 
proceeds from the Campus Chest 
drive now in progress. A contribution 
to this drive, no matter how small, 
will help make life easier for some 
fellow student who has no chance to 
help himself. When the solicitors ap- 
proach you, think of that snowstorm 
and frJPeign students when you decide 
on the size of your contribution.

Dear Editor: 

The Adelphia-Isogon would like to 
take this opportunity to thank all who 
assisted in making our football rallies 
successful. In particular w e would 
like to render public acclaim to Her- 
bert Randolph and George Mellen and 
their departments; Matt Hlaisdell and 
the farm department; the band, the 
military department, the girls' drill 
team, Dean Hopkins, Bill Gallamore 
'50, the football team and coaching 
ttaff, and the student body for its 
renewed spirit and general revival. 

It is such cooperation that will 
make this university the equal of any- 
other university. Thanks again to all 
and let's keep that enthusiasm for 
all athletic teams. 

Don Kinsman '49 

At the youthful age of 61 Dr. Harry 
Newton Glick, professor of philosophy 
at the U of M, has memories of more 
than forty happy years of work as 
an educator. 

He has taught students of every 
grade, from those in the' primary 
classes to graduates studying for 
doctor's degrees. It is his experience 
that teaching the first graders was 
much harder work than lecturing t<> 
gradual *. Heal wisdom is necessary 
to keep ahead of the little folk Dr. 
Glick found, while appearing wise 
seems to suit graduate students. 
School Principal At 19 
He began teaching at the age of 
19 as principal of a two-room school 
near his farm home at Hridgewater, 

Born in 1885, Dr. Glick was one of 
ten children. School opportunities 
were limited. He had a brother three 
years older than himself who was lazy 
in school, but when young Harry- 
showed more speed and went way 
ahead of his brother h e was jerked 
out of the classroom to work on the 

By the time he was 19 Dr. Glick 
recalls that he had only attended 
school for forty-two months. 

After two years as a school princi- 

pal he went to the academy, and later 
went on to Bridgewater College, tak- 
ing a bachelor's degree in 1918. 
Student -Day Problem 

Students of those days had prob- 
lems, too. One of Dr. Click's COOTM 
at the college was Creek — in a class 
one year that started the term with 
six members. But it wasn't the meet 
popular course at school, so the clui 
gradually shrank. Finally student 
Click was the sole victim of individual 
attention. The professor poured it on. 

Soon the straining Creek scholar 
learned that because the school 
couldn't afford to give a course for 
one pupil, the professor had ordei 
from the president to squeeze him out 
with tough lessons.

Welcome To WMUA 

Sundav, November 21st marked the , 
formal recognition of the existence 
on campus of radio station WMUA., 
It was fitting that President Van Me- j 
tei was present to add his weight to 
the congratulations extended at the 
open house program. 

The CoiUffi** J oins in congratulat- 
ing the entire staff of station WMUA 
on a promising start in their broad- 
casting activities. In spite of numer- 
als b e h i n d-the-scenes difficulties, 
many encountered at the last minute, 
the show went on in the best tradi- 
tions of the radio business. Perhaps 
few people realize the amount of un- 
,, reparation that goes into the 
production of such a show, but all 
will agree that the job was well done. 
The fact that the station has been 
reactivated is significant, not only 
beoause the student body now 
has its own campus station to which 

t can listen. The renewal of activi- 
ties also means that the University 
..f Massachusetts has joined a large 
number of other schools who are 
making a name for themselves in the 
same field. Now that the start has 
been made, the possibilities of bring- 
ing credit to our school are limitless. 
The station can be a source not only 
of entertainment and information for 
this campus, but another means of 
showing the people of the common- 
wealth that we have definitely moved 
out of the horse-and-buggy class. 

Although the primary purpose of 
any such student enterprise is of 
course to serve the campus and afford 
valuable experience for staff mem- 
bers, the benefit to the school in out- 
side recognition is an almost inevit- 
able result. Considering both of these 
effects, the activities of station 
WMUA are to be highly commended.

They couldn't do it. Dr. Glick 
studied Greek for three hours before 
each meeting of the class, and by th>- 
term's end he had successfully covered 
much more Greek than the court 
should have required. As a result, ir 
two later years of Greek courses th»- 
stubborn student rode by with ease 

Married in 1914 

Dr. Glick was awarded his A..M 
degree from Northwestern Universit; 
in 1914. He married a western gir 
and returned to teaching — for 
year in Wisconsin, and for two mot) 
in Illinois. 

In 1917 he returned to his father-ir, 
law's farm where three hundred acr< - 
of corn land were being neglected be 
cause laborers had left to join tk- 
services. In 1920 he left the farm fa 
the University of Illinois where, by 
teaching school mornings and attend- 
ing classes afternoons, he was able t 
earn his Ph.D. in 1924. 

Then Dr. Glick came to the U of M 
At first he was professor of botl 
psychology and philosophy. Later 
chose to concentrate entirely on phil- 
osophy. He is alone in the departme:' 
but expects one or two new teacher- 
next year.

In a little over six years, Dr. Gli 
will be eligible for retirement. Thoupr 
he has enjoyed teaching he expects I 
spen-d well earned leisure on his larp 
farm located in the Shenandoah Va 
ley of Virginia. He enjoys fan 
still and has done some experimenta 
farming with dahlias and strawh. ■:■ 

With dahlias he has tried for giar 
plants and has succeeded in grow:- 
flowers about a foot in diameter. H- 
has one stalk preserved that is eigh- 
teen feet and nine inches tall. 

The nature of a strawberry is mon 
stubborn, but by tending one plar 
very closely he got a monster. It wa- 
a plant that by chance grew onh

appeared measured seven and thr-

While Arnold J. ("Bud") Estelle

book crediting about $225.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony per- 
formed at the WMCA Open House 
by President Ralph A. Van Meter 
marked the official opening of the 
University radio station. 

President Van Meter extended 
words of welcome and wishes for suc- 
cess to the newly initiated station. 

The reception, held at Memorial 
Hall on Sunday, November 21, fea- 
tured a program consisting of sing- 
ers and entertainers from Amherst 
College and the University. This 
broadcast was the first to go out over 
the air on the extended line, making 
it possible for the station to be heard 
over the entire campus and part of 

Amherst Group Entertains 

The Amherst Double Quartet, a 
choral unit of eight Amherst College 
students conducted by George Bliss, 
opened the entertainment with a typ- 
ical double quartet program. Begin- 
ning with their theme song, Hello, 
and continuing with several familiar 
favorites, the songsters were met 
with the approval of the guests. 

WMUA was fortunate in having 
Pan Theodore, a noted sculptor and 
singer, appear for the program. 
Visiting Ezra Shabas, Mr. Theodore 
was heard singing, and upon the re- 
quest of the radio committee to ap- 
pear on the program, he obliged by 
singing the title song from Siveet- 
hiarts and "Deep in My Heart" from 
The Student Prince. 

Mr. Theodore, who attends the 
Hackley School in New York, has ap- 
peared in the Broadway production 
Out Touch of Venus. 

Other entertainers included singers 
Lee Carr, who sang The Deoort Sung 
and Indian Lint Call, and Ed Pur- 
rington, who vocalized Moke-Betiev* 
ami The Htutlttr on the Hill. 

My Dear John; 

I realize that you can't write too 
often since your homework does tak«- 
up so much of your time, but we do 
miss hearing from you. 

I've been working on your father 
about the car for the Ball, and I 
think I have him just about con- 
vinced. As for the twenty-five dollars 
you requested, your dad and I thought 
that fifteen would do as well. Julie 
must come so far, however, and I 
want to give her a good time, so I 
have enclosed ten extra dollars. Don't 
tell dad. We must humor him some- 
times. We'll keep this OUT little se- 

Love, Mom. 

I * * » 

Dear son, 

It seems strange that your remarks 
(In not reflect your intensive study. 
Just what do you class as homework. 

I told your mother about the car, 
and though she wondered if it were 
safe, I convinced her it was all-right. 
Wo men must stick together. Your 
mom thought twent-five dollars were 
too much, but I can remember how a 
big feed, a big tip, and a big corsag.- 
impresses a girl so I'm enclosing an 
extra ten dollars. Don't tell your 
mother, she wouldn't understand. 


* ♦ * 

Dear Jackie, 

You can't fool me with that study- 
ing routine. I bet you're on tho prowl 
again. Julio would like to know that! 

Jim's been writing steadily, so I 
guess the girls at college don't ap- 
peal to him. I guess we girls back 

Accompanying the linger! 
Richard Rescia at the piano. 


Ed Poirier offered several piano 
selections; Sunrise Serenade, Ida. 
and a special arrangement of Tea 
for Tuo among them. 

Charlie Plumer, acting as Master 
of Ceremonies at the reception, di- 
gressed at one point during the pro- 
gram to give a reading entitled 

Professor Walter A. Smith, who 
has done much in the organizing of 
both WFDM at Devens and WMUA, 
was guest of honor at the reception. 

Notables Present 

Among guests including students, 
faculty members, parents, and outside 
visitors were Mr. and Mrs. Wayne H. 
Latham of Springfield. Mr. Latham 
is Station Manager of WSPR. 

After the program, guests were 
shown through station quarters in 
the tower of South College to view- 
actual shows as they are in progress. 

The Open House was under the di- 
rection of Wayne Langill, Station 
Manager, Ed Young, Program Direc- 
tor, and Dave Meltzer, Head of Pub- 
lic Relations. 

The entire staff would like to ex- 
tend its thanks to Mr. Walter John- 
son, manager of Draper Hall, for 
furnishing refreshments, and to Rob- 
erts-Farmer's, Butler and L T llman's 
and the University greenhouse for 
sending flowers for the occasion.

that you thought enough to ask me. 
How can you consider me M m . |

to exist in college and how low your 
funds must he, so don't worry about 
a thing. A gardenia, if any will he

after the Bali, who wants to dance 
that much anyway? If we're hungry 
we'll stop at a diner. I'll take the 
three p.m. train up there so I'll ar- 
rive about six. All my love till I see 
you — and then I'll show you what I 
mean by it. 

With all my heart,

Hi Stud! 

It's all set with those Smith girls 
for the week after your Mili Ball. 
Hev's all hep over meeting you. I 
gave you quite a build up. She is 
quite a girl herself. I've got th«. sears 
to prove it. Wow, what a party girl! 
I told them we'd go to Johnny's for 
a while. I hope you're loaded. She's 
a heavy spender but well worth it. 
Why don't you keep the car till then ? 
Make an excuse to the folks. They 
always believe us college boys. They 
should know better.

by Penny Tickelis 

So you are no scintillating Terpsi- 
chorean. You do want to learn how- 
to dance or are anxious to discover 
new and fascinating dance steps. Miss

steps, these classes provide for an 
hour of enjoyment and fun. 

The classes ar e held on Thursday 
evenings in Bowditch Lodge behind 
the U store. Fundamental steps for 
beginners are taught from fi:.'10 to 
7:.'10 and from 7:30 until 8:.'i0 ad- 
vanced dancing is instructed. The 
price is 25 cents for six lessons. Miss 
Vickery Hubbard is the dance in-

piano music for dancing. 

The planning committee includes 
the following students: Betty Kreiger, 
Lorraine Selmer, Virginia Ubertalli, 
Edward Camara, Lawrence J. Higgins, 
and Gholi Khazai. 

Students attending the first class 
displayed good rhythm and great en- 
thusiasm and were found to be fast 
in picking up new steps. There is, 
however, need for more girl en- 

So, come one, come all to the social 
dancing classes this evening. You'll 
spend an enjoyable evening tripping 
the light fantastic and will be back 
for more . . . We guarantee!

add that many of them have been 
corrected or are in the process of

By Vernon Brooks 
On Friday, November 12, the 
Stockbridge football team concluded 
its season with a sparkling record of 
4-1-1 under the capable coaching of 
Steve Kosakowski by beating the 
A. I.C. Freshmen 13-7. 

During the past season the team 
encountered some strong opposition 
which rated us as one of the best 
teams to date, even surpassing some 
of Red Ball's squads of a few years 

Mon.son Only Loss 
Our only loss was against Monson 
Academy which squeezed out with a 
7-0 advantage. The game saw back in 
action "Kelly" Ovian of last year 
performing in his usual stride, and 
Bob Ferestien, a freshman, making 
his debut. Bob Roekrich and Wally 
Campbell were superb with these 
line positions. This game later proved 
the incentive that started our win- 
ning ways. 

Ovian Stars 
The second game saw the highly- 
confident blue and white take Nichols 
Jr. College in hand and come out on 
top of a 6-0 margin. Kelly Ovian was 
the main threat of the afternoon do- 
ing the only scoring with an 85 yard 
run to cinch the victory. Wally Camp- 
bell, senior guard, was retired with 
injuries after a splendid showing on 
the field. 

A highly-tauted Wentworth Insti- 
tute squad was the next opponent of 
the Blue and White. Both teams were 
so highly matched that a 0-0 stalmate 

The 1948 varsity soccer team came 
through with a highly successful ft 

son in which they won live games, 
lost four, garnered two shut-out vic- 
tories, toppled Amherst for the Sec- 
end straight year, finished In a •'• 
place tie with Vale in the New Eng- 
land Intercollegiate Soccer Leaj 
which is represented by 18 New Eng- 

laud colleges, hooted home a nio 
total of sixteen goals, ami beat a Ft 
Devens team. 

3 Named All- New hnglaud 
Adding to the success of the Red- 
men hooters is the fact that no Ii 

than three of their players wen 

named on the All-New England 
■quad. Those named for All-New Eng- 
and honors by the college BOCCi 
coaches of New England were: Full- 
back Jack Holt, Goalie E. McGrath 
and Center Half Boh Tetrault. 11 
was also named on last years All- 
squad and he participated in the 
Olympic tryouts. 

In going over the Redmen SOCCCI 

victories of the season, probably t In- 
most outstanding one that comes t 
mind is the thrilling Amherst gam- 
in which the L'M booters emergec 
with a hard earned 1-0 shut-out vic- 
tory. Ed McGrath played a tremer. 
dous game in the goal by turning 
back all threats in brilliant fashion. 
Bob Tetrault's penalty kick in th* 
third period proved to be the undoing 
of the Jeffs as they went down t 
defeat for the second straight year 
at the hands of the UM forces. 

The Redmen's season record saw 
victories over Clark 3-1, Worcester 
Tech 3-1, Amherst 1-0, Ft. Deve: 
8-0, Tufts 4-1, and defeats by Dart- 
mouth 2-0, Williams 3-0, Connecticut 
3-1, Trinity 2-1. 

Winton High Scorer 
The leading goal-getter on th* 
Redmen squad was Red Winton wh 
scored a total of five goals. Other 
scorers were Joe Lit (3), Bob Tet- 
rault (3), Chet Libucha (2), Frank 
Kulas (2), and Tony Ferreira (1). 

All four set-backs received by tb 
Briggsmen were close contests whu 
could have gone either way. One : 
the Redmen's best games was again- 
Connecticut in a contest which sa 
the UM booters pressing all the waj 
but finally losing out 3-1. Connect: 
cut later beat Springfield to cop tr- 
National Soccer Championship.

1948 Cross Country Recap 

by John Oliver 

After .an early season one point upset by a surprising Northeasters 

i a stellar Redmen cross-country team went on to win five straight dual 

meets and compile the second lowest score in the history of the University 

I Massachusetts cross country. The Derbymen in piling up only 12o points 

,->v 28 points behind last year's record low of 102 points, and ten points 

id of the 194*1 total of 185 points. 

Louie dough was again the team's outstanding runner as he added 
|.,ix mora firsts to string his total to an astounding 17 in a row. Lou, who is 
latill undefeated in dual competition, broke two moi*e track records, knocking 

BCOnds from the Devens course and ten seconds from the Criivorsity of 

[Massachusetts course. 

Whitey Coaaar, last year's winter track captain, edged Wally Ssetela 
|by one point for second individual scoring honors. Whitey was very eon- 
tent, finishing second once, third three times, fourth once, and sixth once. 

[Wally Ssetela also fell out of the- charmed first Ave only one* — in the MIT 

. when he placed seventh. Wally had two second places, one third, and 

I'aul Channel was the only other harrier to finish in the first ten in every 
ace. Ed Funkhouser finished in the first ten in five of th* six meet.- and 
ain I'M Piere* came in four out of six times. 

After the .Northeastern upset, the team came hack strong against Won 
er Polytech, with no less than seven Massachusetts runners crossing the 
finish line before 8 Worcester runner finished. The Redmen failed by one 
• from making it two perfect matches in a row when they swan iped 
{Trinity 10-47 the next week. 

MIT gave the Redmen a close run for their money as they placed n 
econd, fourth, fifth, eighth, and ninth. In this meet the sixth and seventh __ 
won by Channel and Ssetela proved very important in supporting 
tan to eke out a 27-28 victory. The team finished its dual meets by 
efeating Vermont and Devens by substantial margins. 

The Redmen also did well in their intersectional meets. At Storrs, Conn., 

I revival of the Connecticut Valley Championships, the Harriers finished 

hird behind powerful Coast Guard and Springfield teams. The next week the 

arriers did themselves proud by beating their Connecticut Valley rivals I School 27-0. Kelly "ovian, Bob Fere

Extension Service Highly Useful 
In Aiding Farmers Of Commonwealth 

■*-/ 1 

by Noni Spreiregen 

Since early Colonial days of salt- 
box houses, herb gardens, and trim 
lawns fringed with graceful elms, 
Massachusetts homeowners have tak- 
en special pride in the appearance of 
their property. 

On Bay State farms, poultrymen 
have the world's highest producing 
birds; cattle diseases have been wiped 
out to the point where any milk of- 
fered for sale in Massachusetts may- 
be used without fear of the danger 
of tuberculosis. In recent years, these 
success stories have been brought 

charged with the responsibility of 
providing instruction in agriculture 
and home economics to persons not 
attending college. These land grant 
institutions responded by setting up 
County Extension Services in each 
agricultural county so that this in- 
struction, emanating from the col- 
lege, might be closely related to local 
farm and home conditions. 

The entire resources of the statt 
college are available to the agent* in 
supplying information to assist farm- 
ers and homemakers in solving their

vision of the University of Massachu- 

Offers Many Services 

The Extension Service offers on 
the farms and in the homes and com- 
munities of the state many of the 
services that the college provides for 
students on the campus at Amherst. 
It offers instruction in agriculture 
and homemaking for adults and for 
young people above the age of ten. 

Under the directorship of Willard 

ods. Through the use of this informa- 
tion, farmers and homemakers are 
enabled to make sound judgments on 
questions affecting their home or 
farm business. 

Child development and parent edu- 
cation, nutrition, buying, home fur- 
nishings, clothing the family, market-

setts Agricultural College, 1905, the 
Extension Service provides specific 
education programs pertaining to 
dairying, fruit growing, poultry rais- 
ing," forestry, vegetable gardening, 
and field crops. Programs are 
planned so that groups of home- 
makers may discuss their problems 
and, through exchange of knowledge 
and experience, gain information on 
which to base choices and decisions, 
and to establish standards of living. 

The Extension Service was first or- 
ganized at this college in 1909 under 
the direction of Kenyon L. Butter- 
field, then president of the school. Its 
main functions were to make farm 
contacts with organizations like 
Granges, farmers' clubs, and farmers' 


System Started In 1914 

In 1914, with the passage of the 
Smith-Lever Act came the establish- 
ment of the nation-wide system of 
extension education. 

By this act, the Land Grant Col- 
leges of the various states were 

such questions. All are included in 
the extension program. 

Aids 4-H Clubs 
The 4-H Club program offers in- 
struction to young people in agricul- 
ture and home economics. Any group 
of young people anywhere in Massa- 
chusetts who can find a local leader 
to guide their activities can organize 
a club under the supervision of the 
county extension service. The sub- 
jects from which they may choose in- 
clude clothing, home furnishing, food 
preservation, food preparation, dairy, 
poultry, handicraft, vegetable and 
flower gardening, and conservation 
including forestry and wildlife man- 
agement. Specialists from University 
of Massachusetts cooperate with the 
club agents in providing specific in- 
struction in the many phases of agri- 
culture and homemaking. 

Newspapers, farm magazines, and 
radio broadcasts are invaluable aids 
in the efforts of the Extension Serv- 
ice to bridge the gap between proved 
research and every day practice.

Snow Hazard, Parking 
Endanger Student Cars 

A discussion on the current campus 
parking problem and a proposed solu- 
tion for it was a major point of the 
Senate Meeting held on Tuesday eve- 
ning in Old Chapel Auditorium. Dean 
Robert Hopkins offered information 
which shed much light on this prob- 
lem, as well as on the recent edict 
prohibiting the use of cooking equip- 
ment in all dormitories. 

Concerning the parking situation, 
I).. in Hopkins pointed out the obvious 
inadequacy of facilities for taking 
care of the approximately 1000 cars 
registered with the administration by- 
student operators. He made several 
suggestions that the student Senators 
could take up with their various con- 
stituents and thus attempt to correct 
somewhat the poor conditions which 
exist at present. 

1. There is a town ordinance which 
states that cars may not be parked 
on the streets of Amherst overnight. 
This ordinance carries a $5 fine for 

2. Federal Circle cars have been 
tagged for parking too close to the 
buildings, creating a fire hazard. This 
tagging can be done by campus police, 
who as members of the town police 
force have the authority to enforce 
Amherst ordinances. 

3. A suggestion has been made to 
prohibit resident students from park- 
ing automobiles on campus from after 
the Christmas vacation until after the 
Easter vacation, because of lack of 
parking facilities and the hazard 
caused by plowing in the advent of 
snow. Commuters would be allowed to 
use the available spaces on campus, 
and any resident student wishing to 
keep a car in Amherst would have to 
find a place off campus to park it. 

This suggestion was tabled until 
the next Senate meeting and a com- 
mittee composed of Clark Kendall, 
Mike Kelly, and Al Taylor was ap- 
pointed to investigate the problem. 
One solution suggested by Mr. Ken- 
dall was that vacant fields an campus

Collegian Elects Seven 
Competitors To Staff 

The election of seven competitors 
to the Collegian staff was announced 
at a meeting last Thursday, as the 
com petition period neared a close. 

Those newly named to the staff 
were the following: F'red Cole '52, 
Barbara Curran '50, Carl Cutler 7.0, 
Sylvia Kingsbury '52, Agnes Mc- 
Donough '51, Elbert Taitz '50, Penel- 
ope Tickelis '52. 

Because of the large number of 
competitors for the staff this year, 
it was announced that not all those 
competing could be adequately judged 
for election to the staff immediately. 
The remainder of the competing group 
will be considered as contributors to 
the Collegian, however. 

A tentative date of the first meeting 
after the Christmas vacation was set 
for the election of those remaining 
competitors who are judged ready 
for staff status. 


The contract signed last week by- 
Jack would bring Johnny of "Shanty- 
town" and "When I Crow too Old to 
Dream" fame to Amherst on Feb. 11 
to play from 9-1 at the Carnival Ball 
to be held in the Amherst College 


Jack says he has it first hand from 
some Dartmouth College men that 
Johnny Long proved "absolutely ter- 
rific" when he played there a year 
ago. Long will prove one of the high- 
est priced bands to appear here yet 
and will bring his quintet, "The 
Beachcombers" with him, an assort- 
ment of specialists, and his orchestra

After 10.004 man hours of labor, 
Chest Chairman Ted Blank begot a 
5 foot 2 inch plywood sculpture of 
Miss Good Samaritan to stand by the 
Chest thermometer in front of South 

Dressed in a two-piece bathing 
suit, Miss Good Sam was to watch 
the thermometer rise as contributions 
to the Campus Chest were tabulated. 
However, her tour of duty proved to 
be very short. 

When Dean Helen Curtis and Dean 
Robert Hopkins spotted her they 
asked that she be removed because 
she was "in bad taste and inappro- 
priate for the drive." 

"We are wholeheartedly in favor 
of the Campus Chest Drive," Dean 
Curtis said, "but we object to that

Dr. Gilbert Llewellyn Woodside, 
head of the newly-combined zoology 
and physiology department, may be 
found expounding on chromosomes, 
blood circulation and other aspects 
of human anatomical functioning 
every day at freshman zoo lectures 
in Fernald Hall. 

Born in Curwensville, Pennsyl- 
vania on February 9, 1909, he was 
educated at De Pauw University 
where outstanding work as an under- 
graduate won him a scholarship in 
science for the summer vacation after 
his junior year at the Marine Biolog- 
ical Laboratory at Woods Hole, 

Here Dr. Woodside became inter- 
ested in zoology, and, equally import- 
met Miss Mary Livingston. At 

One Every 27 Seconds 

In just about eight days all of us will be preparing to leave 
for the Christina* vacation. Many of us will be driving home., 
either in our own cars or those of parents or friends. It may seem 
premature at such an early date to mention the dangers involved, 
but it is important that everyone realize just how important they 


Facta and figures on safety may not he interesting, but when 
applied to each of us— to you and me-they are important. For in- 
stance there is an injury from an automobile accident every 27 
seconds, on the average. So what? Figures from the Lumberman s 
Mutual Casualty Company show that one person out of 4500 will 
be killed in an auto accident this year. What do we care? 

We care because the important fact is this: during the Christ- 
mas vacation period, deaths from auto accidents average two to 
three times the annual daily average. And drivers between the 
ages of 18 and 24 were involved in 27 per cent of all fatal accidents 
last year. This shows pretty definitely that college students during 
Christmas holidays have the best chance of any group in the na- 
tion of getting hurt in an automobile. 

Keep that fact in mind, all of you who will be driving home- 
ward for a happy holiday next Friday. When you get the tempta- 
tion to step on it, remember that for every extra mile per hour 
you drive, you're running that much more risk of killing your- 
self or somebody else. So take it easy. Drive home safely and 

sanely, and continue to do so all during the vacation. You'll be a 
lot more likely to come back after the holidays are over.

He must ascertain what his guid- 
ing philosophy is, how it differs (if 

il differs) from that of the man in 
another department, and why he 
holds it to be true. It should be self- 
evident to the teacher that he cannot 
blindly reject another individual's 
viewpoint, that his rejection can be 
valid only if it rests upon carefully 

developed premises. Otherwise his 
teaching can hold no reel meaning 
for his students.

Huskies To Start 
Strong Quintet 

The U of M eager* blew the lid of 
the basketball season playing host to 
Clark University in the Cage last 
night. At press time, the results of 
the game were not yet in, but with 
this contest out of the way, the Red- 
men were ready to tackle the rest of 
their schedule. 

This was the first of three games 
scheduled before the Xmas holidays, 
with Northeastern (Dec. 11) and 
Worcester Tech (Dec. 15) to follow, 
and a Maine game scheduled for 
January 1st to open the New Year 
with a bang. 

Huskies Strong 

With this opening encounter under 

their belts, Red Ball's netmen should 
be set for their tilt with the formid- 
able Northeastern Huskies on Satur- 
day, in Huston. On paper the Huskies 
figure to have a tall, strong quintet 
and practically the same club that 
trounced the Redmen last year, 57- 

The Northeastern attack will doubt- 
less center around "Inga" Walsh, six 
foot, three-inch all-New England 
center who sparked the Huskies last 
year, averaging 16 points per game. 
Walsh, however, has been handicapped 
with a broken finger for six months, 
and while he will play, may not be as 
effective. Three of the remaining four 
starters were regulars last year and 
reports from Boston way indicate that 
the Huskies intend to and are capable 
of improving on their 10-8 record 
compiled last winter. 

Newcomers Start 

The Redmen also will floor a great- 
ly improved quintet, being strength- 
ened in the front court by two Devens 
transfers, Bill Ryback and Bill Crim- 
min. Ryback, the steadiest performer 
for the Chiefs last year, can be count- 
ed on to add measurably to the Red- 
men's scoring punch. Crimmin, an

Looking Things Over 

by Russ Broude 

adept ball handler and a good man 
off the backboards should work 
smoothly with Ryback and Looney. 
The boys are no strangers to each 
other, all three having played togeth- 
at Devens. In the rear court Red 
is fortunate in having two cap- 
veterans in Ed McGrath and 
Tonet. Last year's freshman 
play as a unit, alternating 





team wi 

with the starting five. 

Engineers Next 

The Redmen will close shop until 
the first of the year after entertain- 
ing Worcester Tech on the 15th. The 
Engineers were not too impressive 
last year, winning six and dropping 
■even. They will enter the cage with 
nine holdovers from the squad that 
split even with the Redmen last win- 
ter. Tech, however, boasts of two up 
and coming sophomores, Dick How- 
ard and Bill Barna. These men scored 
close to fifty points between them in 
a pre-season game with Becker. 

The only objection I can raise to 
the not-too-cold weather is that it is 
putting off hockey practice to aw- 
fully near the danger point. There 
are rumors to the effect that boards 
will be put up in the cage for prac- 
tice, but this can hardly be sufficient 
to place a team on the ice against 
Vermont on January 8th. The only 
other alternative seems to be practice 
in the Springfield Coliseum which 
was considered and rejected earlier 
in the year, for many reasons, main- 
ly dissatisfaction with last year's 
similar arrangements. 

Meanwhile, Tommy Filmore, hock- 
ey coach, is commuting daily from 
Thompsonville, Connecticut, about 25 

That 62-39 score of the New Brit- 
ain-Redmen game last Saturday 
wasn't much to help the spirits along, 
but the first real test was last night. 
The results of this game were not 
known at publication time, but the 
campus saw its first glimpse of this 
year's white hopes and has already 
formed its initial impression. 

Sophomore center Ed White, after 
talking a basketball blue-streak the 
past month, was unfortunate enough 
to be benched during the exhibition 
game last Saturday, although Red 
Ball permitted him to go along for 
the ride. Ed pulled a leg muscle just 
prior to the contest and Red consid- 
ers him a little too valuable to sacri- 
fice for a practice game. He was ex- 
pected to play last night, and in all 
likelihood will be ready for Saturday 
if he wasn't then. 

The men that Red expects to take 
on the Maine excursion January 1st 
will leave from Amherst, and will be 
back here a few days early for prac- 
tice. That's gonna kinda interrupt 
their vacation and celebration, but 
from the spirit displayed and the de- 
sire to play basketball I doubt if the 
little inconvenience will phase many 
of them. 

-\Ball Turns Out 
Second Undefeated 
Freshmen Eleven 

Red Ball has done it again. For the 
second consecutive year the freshman 
squad has been undefeated in all 
their grid tilts, and has been scored 
upon only once. In compiling their 
4-0 record the gridsters amassed an 
amazing total of 85 points. 

In their first contest a rather 
shaky freshmen eleven squeezed by 
an underdog AIC squad 7-0. The 
game was marked by numerous Red- 
men fumbles but a late fourth period 
drive netted the gridsters the win- 
ning touchdown. 

Leicester Junior College was by 
far the easiest rival of the Frosh los- 
ing by a lopsided score of 53-0. In 
this tilt the Little Indians complete- 
ly dominated the play offensively and 
defensively while numerous intercept- 
ed Leicester passes further aided in 
the scoring. 

In their toughest tilt of the season 
the Ballmen had to stave off a last 
period rally by a strong Springfield 
eleven in order to garner their third 
straight victory 13-7. 

The New England College frosh 
were the last team to meet the fresh- 
men this season and they two went 
down to defeat by a 12-0 score. A 
recovered fumble and a 36 yd. drive 
providing the measure of victory.

Frosh Netmen Out; 
Prep For W.P.I. Tilt 

Earl Lorden's freshman basketball 
squad clashes with the Worcester 
Tech frosh as a preliminary to the 
varsity game next Wednesday eve- 
ning at 6:30 in the cage. The Maroon 
and White opened their season last 
night against the Clark University 

But eighteen players remain out of 
the forty candidates for the squad. 
Coach Lorden's present first team has 
Ed Kerswig and Bill Prevey starting 
at the forward slots. Art Barrett 
gets the nod for center over Art 
Howard. Mike Garvey and Dick Er- 
landson will hold down the guard 
positions on the first team. 

Ray Gunn, the lad who sparked the 
Williams High School team here in 
the Small High School Tourney early 
in the year, is sure to see much serv- 
ice at forward. The other forward on 
the second team is I'aul Bourdreau. 

The Worcester game will be the 
final contest for the Frosh before the 
Christmas vacation. The Maroon and 
White will play their third game on 
the fifth of January when they tackle 
Stockbridge in the curtain raiser of 
an evening which will find the varsity 
meeting Fort Devens. 

The candidates expected to dress 
for the Tech game range in height 
from 5' 7" Ray Gunn to Johnny 
Boelsma at a mere 6' 6". They are 
Art Barret, John Boelsma, Paul 
Bourdreau, Jerry Carey, Fred Cole, 
Bob Eames, Dick Erlandson, Mike 
Garvey, Ray Gunn, Art Howard, Ed 
Kerswig, Gene Misiaszek, Al Pier- 
poran, Bill Prevey, Dick Scully. Walt 
Szostak, and Dick Vanasse. 

The amount of experience the boys 
have had varies considerably. Art 
Barrett from Wollaston saw good 
service while at Newman Prep. Fri- 
bourg Academy's contribution to the 
Little Indian squad is Bill Prevey, 
a member of the frosh grid squad. 
Ed Kerswig and Paul Bourdreau, two 
lads from Turner's Falls, should pro- 
vide good forward material.

Required Courses, 

Survey Indicates 

by Lillian Kara* 
A Collegian survey of the fresh- 
en requirements of fifteen New 
a:id rollers revealed that the 
University of Massachusetts and the 
newly founded Brandeii College arc 
only schools of the fifteen which 
expect their freshmen to take one 
,.ar of mathematics as well as a 
physical or biological science 

An opinion often expressed on cam- 
pus is tha't such requirements should 
be optional with liberal arts students, 
. obligatory only to math and sci- 


To illustrate how many schools 

avoided burdening their students 

with a too heavy science requirement 

should like to cite the results of 

lUrvey mentioned above. 

Six Require Math or Science 

Six of the New K.ngland college* 
state outright that entering students 
• have either a year of math or 
t year of science. Included in this 
group of schools are Smith, Bates, 
and Simmon*. 

Other colleges vary in their re- 
quirements. At the University of New 
Hampshire students must, in their 
four years, complete a year of a bi- 
■ieal science as well as a year 
of a physical science (chemistry, 
igy, math, or physics). Brown 
University offers a choice of one year 
of a physical or biological science, 
math, or philosophy. 

Two of the following sciences must 
be taken in either the freshman or 
sophomore year by students at the 
U. of Maine: math, chemistry, zool- 
ogy, physics, astronomy, geology, or

Holy ( i o>s Requirements 
To gain an A.B. degree at Holy- 
Cross a student needs no math or 
science in his freshman year. He may, 
however, substitute a math course in 
place of the required course in Greek. 
In the junior year he must take a 
biological or physical science. 

The policy at Harvard ia such that 
the only required course is freshman 

Knglish. Although no science course 
is needed, students are advised to take 
one year of science during their four 
years of matriculation. 

The survey also shows that the 
U. of M. is the only school in the 
group which demands that students 
in all schools except that of Business 
Administration take two years of sci- 
ence as well as freshman math.

Bowker And Cage Have 
Problem In Lighting 

Many of us, at one time or another, 
have had our light bulbs burn out 
right while we were in the middle of 
a good hook and have gotten up very 
unwillingly to change these bulbs, 
with our spirits slightly dampened, 
to say the least. 

This, we agree, can be an aggravat- 
ing experience, but suppose we were 
in the Cage or in Bowker Auditorium 
some night where the lights are en- 
tirely beyond our reach, and this same 
thing happened. A good imagination 
might lead us to venture a few 
gueaset like doing the Indian Hope 
trick and having someone shinny up, 
or make like a bird and fly up. 

Much to our disappointment, how- 1 
ever, we are informed by the janitor | 
at the Cage that the men from the | 
power plant come over, and, supported 
by heavy belts, climb up the girderi, 

and presto! the bulb is changed. In 

Bowker, however, the men have to 
go up to the attic, lower the chande- 
lier by means of a rope to which each 

chandelier is attached, and change the 
bulbs from the ground floor. 

So the next time your trusty bulbs 
burn out when you're studying for 
that hour exam, think of the poor 
janitor in the Cage and Bowker.

The Math building, the small, white 
frame structure with the greenhouse 
attached, was built by the entomology 
and zoology departments of Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College in 1890, 
to be used as an "Insectary". Since 
that time the building has been used 
for everything from headquarters for 
the Itodent Control Service to the of- 
fice for the Student Christian Associa- 

When the original building, the ell 
of the present wooden structure, was 
built, it was used for both college and 
experiment station work. In 1894, a 
two-story wooden structure, now the 
main part of the builidng, was added 
and called the entomological labora- 
tory. It was a well lighted and well 
equipped laboratory for microscopical 
work. A 21 foot extension to the back 
of the building was added in 1905. 
Large Collection 
The entomological collection by this 
' time, had greatly increased and stored 


in the old two-story building wan 
materials valued at between $30,00n 
and 135,000, and a large number of 
type specimens of insects which could 
never be replaced. Conditions wen 
crowded and a new building was badly 


The new entomology and aoologj 
building, Fernald Hall, was complete,; 
in 1910 and the old building w*j 
eventually turned over to the mathe- 
matics department. 

During the depression, the upper 
floor was used for a while as head- 
quarters for the Civilian Conservation 
Corps in this region. A few year? 
later the Rodent Control Service took 
over the two back rooms and when 
they moved out the faint odor of rat 
poison still drifted about the building. 

The building at present is used for 
math classes and provides offices for 
math teachers. The Student Christian 
Association has had its Office in the 
building for the past two years.

Xmas*&tt&iifg B T L o Students And Faculty of the U of M -In the Heart of the Commonwealth 

iver 2100 See Sweethearts, 
let Bonus of Song, Comedy 

Cast and Production Termed Excellent 

By Ed Cynarski 

The more than 2100 people who saw the Operetta Guild pro- 
ui-tion of Victor Herbert's Sweethearts in its three-day stand in 
owker Auditorium last weekend were treated to a bonus meas- 
re of laughs and melody as Director Doric Alviani scored another 
uisical success. 

The performances showed a happy 
hmbination in choice of operetta and 
casting. The result was a thor- 
aghly enjoyable display of campus 
ical and comedy talent. 
The outstanding characteristic of 
ie production was the remarkably 
tiod way in which the diverse leads 
ere filled. This factor, coupled with 
el lent presentation of Victor Her- 
ri's refreshing hits, tempts one to 
ggest that Sweethearts will be re- 
entered as a standard of excellence 
U of M musicals. 

Billings and Purrington Star 
Dorothy Morton Billings played the 
minine romantic lead of Sylvia with 
usual excellence. Hers was the 
Hcult assignment of carrying the 
Jajor part of the thin romantic plot, 
hd this she accomplished with pol- 

IHer rendition of the title song and 

[her Herbert melodies was superb, 

>mething the campus has been led 

expect since her performance in the 

Mill two years ago. 

Ed Purrington handled both the 

il and dramatic aspects of the 

i',r romantic leads with skill and 

bility. His too was a difficult part 

eil-played, since as Prince Franz of 

lania he had to remain aloof from 

horseplay in which the other 

iracters were able to indulge. 

I Ed played the part under trying 

trsonal circumstances since his fath- 

died of a heart ailment three days 

Ifore the opening. It took guts, as 

p-11 as ability, to put over the roman- 

lead after that. The, cast t 
Igecrew of the production contri- 
ved to the American Heart Society 
a token of appreciation.

Hawley Discusses 
Rental Reductions 

The Student Senate, at its regular 
meeting Tuesday night, voted to ap- 
point a committee to present the stu- 
dent side of the dormitory rent re- 
duction question to the annual meet- 
ing of the Board of Trustees in Jan- 
uary. This was decided after Treas- 
urer Robert Hawley informed the 
Senate that the Board had sole juria 
diction in the matter. 

Mr. Hawley told the Senate mem- 
bers that the rental rates on self- 
liquidating dormitories were fixed by 
the trustees, and that no changes in 
these rates could be made without 
the Board's authorization and ap- 
proval. The treasurer realized that 
the crowded conditions in the dormi- 
tories called for some reduction, but 
he expressed the opinion that a suf- 
ficient allowance had already been 
made for this p-.irpose.

Iyer 2100 See Sweethearts, 
et Bonus of Song, Comedy 

Cast and Production Termed Excellent 

By Ed Cynarski 

The more than 2100 people who saw the Operetta Guild pro- 
tion of Victor Herbert's Sweethearts in its three-day stand in 
iowker Auditorium last weekend were treated to a bonus meas- 
re of laughs and melody as Director Doric Alviani scored another 
nusical success. 

The performances showed a happy 
>mbination in choice of operetta and 
tasting. The result was a thor- 
Ighly enjoyable display of campus 
,cal and comedy talent. 
The outstanding characteristic of 
e production was the remarkably 
Bod way in which the diverse leads 
»re filled. This factor, coupled with 
Icellent presentation of Victor Her- 
Irt's refreshing hits, tempts one to 
■jggest that Sweethearts will be re- 
■embered as a standard of excellence 
I V of M musicals. 

Billings and Purrington Star 
I Dorothy Morton Billings played the 
Iminine romantic lead of Sylvia with 
jr usual excellence. Hers was the 
Ifficult assignment of carrying the 
jajor part of the thin romantic plot, 
nd this she accomplished with pol- 
iter rendition of the title song and 
^her Herbert melodies was superb, 
ttmething the campus has been led 
B expect since her performance in the 
led Mill two years ago. 
j Kd Purrington handled both the 
•x-a! and dramatic aspects of the 
aai<- romantic leads with skill and 
bility. His too was a difficult part 
ell-played, since as Prince Franz of 
llania he had to remain aloof from 
horseplay in which the other 
iracters were able to indulge. 
|Ed played the part under trying 
^rsonal circumstances since his fath- 
died of a heart ailment three days 
}fore the opening. It took guts, as 
(■11 as ability, to put over the roman- 

d after that. The cast 
pgeerew of the production contri- 
• <i to the American Heart Society

Hawley Discusses 
Rental Reductions 

The Student Senate, at its regular 
meeting Tuesday night, voted to ap- 
point a committee to present the stu- 
dent side of the dormitory rent re- 
duction question to the annual Met- 
ing of the Hoard of Trustees in Jan- 
uary. This was decided after Treas- 
urer Robert Hawley informed the 
Senate that the Hoard had sole juris- 
diction in the matter. 

Mr. Hawley told the Senate mem- 
bers that the rental rates on self- 
li(|uidating dormitories were fixed by 
the trustees, and that no changes in 
these rates could be made without 
the Board's authorization and ap- 
proval. The treasurer

tories called for some reduction, but 
he expressed the opinion that a suf- 
ficient allowance had already been 
made for this purpose.

Continued from page 1 

According to Mr. Hawley, rental 
rate on self-liquidating dormitories 
such as Chadbourne and Greenough 
is $150 per year under normal con- 
ditions. This rate is decreased to 
$120 per year if students are doubled 
up. The point made by the Senate a 
this data is that the University would 
b( receiving $360 per year instead of 
the expected $300 in the cases of 
three students living in a double 
room, and that the individual reduc- 
tion is not sufficiently large to maki! 
up for the discomfort caused by the 
crowded conditions. 

Mr. Hawley stated that the ren' 
rates at the University of Massachu- 
setts compare favorably with those of 
other New England colleges, and that 
they cannot be lowered if the build- 
ings are to be paid for. He told the 
Senate that the project had been op- 
erating in the red for several years 
and that the extra money coming in 
now would make up for that lost in 
previous years and leave a proposed 
balance of $5000. 

No rent rise is contemplated for 
next semester according to Mr. Haw- 
ley, but those students who have 
moved from crowded rooms into those 
with normal occupancy will have to 
pay $""> instead of the $00 they paid 
for the first semester. For those who 
will still be in crowded rooms, the 
committee has been appointed to 
bring their plight to the Board of 
Trustees in January

She started her educational career 
at three because her older sister was

The Christmas Spirit Is Still With Us 

Did you ever sit at a cluttered desk in the Collegian office with 
typewriters clattering, phones ringing, people chattering and gen- 
eral confusion reigning and try to think about Christmas .'Try it 

sometime— and see if you can concentrate on sweetness and ngnt | The budRet was discussed and vot 
with a deadline leering evilly over your shoulder. 

Lest our readers come to believe, however, that every Col- 
legian editor becomes a hardened cynic in the job, we would like to 
say that among other things Christmas signifies an opportunity 
for respite from just such mental turmoil as the outward appear- 
ance of our office represents. It is one time of the year at which 
everyone's thoughts somehow become more serene, more bene- 
ficent It is a time when we seem to drag our old ideals out from 
under whatever dust they may have collected during the past 
months; when we feel rise within us again the desire to do or say 
things that might help our fellow mortals along the path just a 
little better. 

In a way, the variety of races and religious faiths on this 
campus are symbolic of the Christmas spirit in aperation. Many 
of us celebrate the holiday in different ways, with varying degrees 
of consecration or fervor. But the fact that we are all living and 
studying together here with a degree of accord unheard of in many 
foreign countries is one manifestation of the basic Christmas 
doctrine of good will toward men. 

At this time of the year, the hope springs higher, that some 
great day there may be half as much accord between nations as 
there is between students on our campus, even granting that per- 
fect agreement does not prevail here.

were only ten miles of hard surfaced

Miss Totman recalls that on one of 
her journeys her horse and buggy

Some idea of Miss Totman's a: 
titude toward life may be gain« 
from a story told by one of her c< 
leagues about her and a bear. The u 
cident occurred during a trip Mi 
Totman made to the west coast 

She was browsing around Yellow 
stone Park when a huge bear ap| 
peared behind her and began ploddir,,- 
along in the same direction she ha; 
chosen. She hastened her pace, an:! 
the hulking beast fell into step bJ 
hind her. As she approached her ca: 
she shrieked to her companion in tr-j 
vehicle: "Jean, Jean! Come quick, ar.; 
you can be chased by a bear, too. 
At this the bear turned and shamb- 
off in the other direction.

Low-Cut Dresses Essential 
To Success Of Female Drag 

by (Jin Leceese 

For the benefit of the "College Crowd", two Dartmouth sen- 
iors wrote a hook telling young ladies everything to expect when 
visiting the various elite colleges on the north east coast. Well, 
almost everything. U of M was not included. Although our male 
campus expects little more than that the girl be pretty, charming 
and agreeable, there are certain | with your date's plans. 
standards feminine visitor! should at- Anywhere, you are required tn be a 


1. Learn to tell an Independent 
from a fraternity man. If he is a 
Greek, snub the Independents. Smile 
superciliously and drawl, "How in- 
triguing", when one passes. The In- 
dependent may be recognized by that 
soiled, hungry look attained by living 
in crowded dormitories. 

Sneer for Beer 
If your man is an Independent, 
sneer at the fratmen and spit "Un- 
washed peasant". Frat men always 
look sated. In either case your date 
will be flattered into buying you 
another beer at Grandi's. 

2. Be able to discuss intelligently 
whatever your man's group is noted 
for. At Kappa Sig, you discuss poli- 
tics and sex; SAE, beer and sex; Phi 
Sig, sex and beer; Theta Chi, sex; 
AEPi, just act, don't talk; Alpha Gam, 
new methods of agriculture, the cur- 
rent price of grape juice punch, and 
mild sex; Sig Ep, the housing short- 
age, Devens, and sex; QTV, illegiti- 
macy and sex; TEP, the merits of 
TEP over AEPi, and sex; and Lambda 
Chi, listen to Izzo's needling and foot- 
ball (the all- American boys). 

Rule for Conversation 
For Independents, just yell "On- 
ward Devens Soldiers" at regular in- 
tervals and you will be classed an 
amazing conversationalist. 

3. The next question is where you 
will go. That is a moot point. On your 
way, however, clothes are definitely 
needed. For frat parties, wear a low- 
cut, tight-fitting dress. A theatre date 
(Town Hall) calls for the addition of 
a coat. A nice skunk will fit in well 

party girl. It would help if you drank, 
but don't be a bottomless reservoir. 
Leave enough for your date to get 
happy, but not enough for him to 
get loaded. If you can't hold down 
your liquor, you'll have to hold up 
your date. 

Feed Sidney 
You should learn the words to 
"You Are My Sunshine", the "There 
once was" jingles and Columbo. Some 
frats will also require "We are the 
Pi Phi Girls", while among Lambda 
Chi's Emerald hordes, if you don't 
know "My Wild Irish Rose", you 
should drop dead. 

4. If you go to luncheon at the 
dorms, remember to pose at the door. 
This gives all the boys a chance for 
a good leer. Don't forget to feed Sid- 
ney, the campus dog; snubbing him 
would be a sacrilege. Just drool a 
mouthful or two on the floor for him. 

5. If you're here for a weekend, 
your residence is a matter of great 
delicacy. Realize that the damn fool 
probably put you in with his campus 
chick and she hates your guts. Praise 
her looks, complain about his not 
paying much attention to you, and 
manage to look like hell without 
make-up if you want to spend a 
peaceful night. 

Five Dollar Weekend 
The Dartmouth boys claim the 
average expenditures for a weekend 
date is $35-$0O. Be prepared for a 
five-dollar weekend. Jf you came up 
by bus, don't hint around for your 
fare. It's bad taste, and besides you 
won't get it. At lunch if he seems 
hesitant about noticing the check, get

morous consequences made him a 
most lovable villain. 

Mary Wells played Dame Paula, 
the owner of the Laundry of the 
White Geese and mother of six pretty 
daughters, with just the right shade 
of skepticism for a woman who was 
supposed to have been abandoned by 
a whiskey-loving husband. The re- 
union scene, when Mikeloviz pretends 
to be her husband home from the 
wars, was one of the highlights of 
the production. 

The part of Lt. Karl, self-loving 
officer of the Queen's Regiment and 
ever-ready Romeo was effectively 
played by Joe Chmura. The outburst 
that jokes about his vanity drew 
from the audience demonstrated Joe's 
success in changing himself into the 
conceited character he portrayed. 

Lee Carr was the ideal ingenue, a 
perfect partner, as the self-centered 
Liane, for Lt. Karl. In addition she 
gave an excellent rendition of Wooden 
Shoes under very distracting circum- 
stances, backed up as she was by the 
hilarious dance routine of John Con- 
Ion, Ed Critchett, Bob Huckins and 
Bill Mellen. 

Character Comedy Successful 

The afore-mentioned Messrs. Conloii 
Critchett and Huckins almost stole 
the show with their character comedy 
roles. John Conlon, as the confident 
but slow-witted Percival Slingsby 
played the role of an upperclass Brit- 
ish "lover", "wit" and gentleman, 
with complete command. Ed Critchett,

The reappearance of the above com- 
bination in various disguises as they 
plotted to achieve their respective 
goals kept the comedy at a high 
pitch. When they joined in a comedy 
number as monks with Mellen, Shen- 
sky and Shaban, the result was slap- 
stick at its funniest. 

Footmen Draw Laughs 

A better choice than Henry Shen- 
sky and Dmytro Shaban for the first 
and second footmen could hardly have 
been made. They were humorous 
enough as the glove-changing wig- 
wearing, white stockinged, servants, 
mimicking the action from their van- 
tage point on the elevated entrance to 
the formal drawing room. Their ex- 
ecution of a comic dance and BOttg, 
with liberal flashing of blacked out 
teeth, however drew some of the loud- 
est laughs of the show. 

Individually, the parts played by 
the six daughters of Dame Paula, 
were small, but collectively they were 
another big reason for the sue 
of the performances. Ruth Coughlin,

Quintet Winds-up Televised N.U. Tilt Under Protes 

Dispute Settled in Huskies Favor 


Edged 44-42; Drop 
Opener To Clark 45-25 

The University of Massachusetts 
Quintet played its first game under 
the watchful eyes of the Television 
camera last Saturday night when they 
met Northeastern at the Huntington 
Avenue "Y" in Boston. The game was 
televised by WBZ-TV. 

The telegenic Redmen came out of 
their first week of basketball with two 
losses Hated in the record book, suffer- 
ing • 45-28 defeat at the hands of 
Clark University and a contested 44- 
12 setback by Northeastern, the latter 
of which the last minute, nine seconds, 
was played under a protest registered 
by Coach Ball. 

Remarkable Improvement 

The over-all improvement in the 
Sophomore and upper class teams over 
their first game with Clark was re- 
markable when comparing the two 
performance*. The Maroon and White 
took an early 8-0 lead with goals by 
Norsky and Gagnon before North- 
eastern recovered and took a 7-6 lead 
with the Huskies star, Inga Walsh, 
accounting for all the points. But the 
Redmen bounced back immediately on 
a tfoal by Gagnon, taking the lead 
and not relinquishing it until the 1st 
half ended 21-17 in the Redman's

certainly was a moral victory. 

From my position at the scoring table I had a bird's aye view of the 
one-point argument. When the discussion started I checked the Collegian's 
scorebook with Ted Goodman's and they agreed perfectly. These in turn 
agreed with those of reporters from various Boston papers. But they did 
not agree with the Huskies Scorer, Malloy, who it is reported, was acting

Although he wasn't called for it, there seemed little enough reason for 
NU's Rodenhizer to elbow Norskey on the chin and send him reeling half- 
way across the floor, when the ball had just gone out of play. 

Meanwhile, let's take a look at the statistics for the two games last 
week and compare the performances with an eye to the improvement made. 
In the Clark fiasco, the Redmen sunk 7 for 17 foul shots for a .412 average, 
upping this in the NU tilt to .9.33, or 14 for 15. Opposite them Clark aver- 
aged .579 and NU .182 settling only 4 in 22 for the Huskies. 

The M & W's gave up almost two for one in the Clark contest, and one 
for one in the NU game. Broken down even further, the Sophs have given 
up i'>2 points, collected 52, while the Senior circuit has given up 27, collected 
15. Much of this is due however to the fact that in the eighty minutes of 
play so far the sophs have accounted for 55 minutes, the upper class five

when they were pulled out six minutes j 
later on a 30-20 score. 

Northeastern again forged ahead to 
take a 3C-29 lead, after which Gagnon ; 
tallied two baskets and a foul to up 
the score 36-34. From this point the 
Huskies held only the two point mar-

eastern's official scorer with a one

Manager Ted Goodman's UM score-

home team record, which is the of- 
ficial scorebook of the game, was con- 
cluded as right, and the scoreboard 
turned back to read 42-40 in the 
Huskies' favor. Red Ball immediately 
entered a protest and the rest of the

I- was at this point, had the Redmen

ten points. 

The teams got off slowly, both of- 
fensives starting sluggishly. The

Riflemen Tip UVM In Initial Meet 

In their initial shoulder to shoulder match of the season, the UM varsity 
rifle team edged a strong University of Vermont squad Saturday afternoon 
by a score of 1337-1333. For those who are unacquainted with the tally sys- 
tems used by the New England College Rifle League, a score as close as this 
will probably not occur again in the New England League for the rest of 
the season. 

The UVM squad entered the match heavy favorites as they were N.E. 
C.R.L. champions last season. However, the UM team, which has been bol- 
stered by sophomores and newcomers, was equal to the task of outpointing 
the Vermonters. 

Sophomore John Ring was high man with a 279 score, and Donald Buss, 
a junior college transfer, pulled an upset by finishing a close second. Tom 
Walz, who is acting captain was third with William Savard and John Hall 
fourth and fifth respectively. 

The rifle team is now a college sport with full varsity status, and letters 
will be awarded to those members who qualify. Anybody with experience 
is encouraged to try out for the team and freshmen are also encouraged to 
come out. Several matches are anticipated for the frosh, both postal and 
shoulder to shoulder. 

The squad is being coached for the second season by Sergeant Harry 
Piatt and Major Voegeli is acting as team adviser. 

The next match is here Jan. 8, with powerful MIT. The riflemen will be 
pointing for victory over the Techmen as this was the same team which 
whipped the L'M so handily in the Intercollegiate Championships last season.

Out of these men, and the new mer

Prospects Dim For 
Successful Swim Season | 

According to the reports cominp 
from Joe Rogers, Jr., colorful coach of 
the UM tank team, the prospect- ! 
a successful swim season are none 
bright for his small contingent ol 
swimsters, who are now getting 
shape for a seven meet schedule. 

Lack of interest for practice and 
for the sport in general seems to be 
the keynote of Rogers' present trou- 
bles, but fiery Joe is hopeful of whip- 
ping up a group of swimmers that will 
at least give the opponents a run foi 
their points. 

Coach Rogers has seven lettermen 
back from last year's team whom he 
will be counting on heavily again tW» 
season. Led by Capt. Ken Parsons the 
lettermen include: Dick Hall, T 
Obrion, Warren Holloway, Jocko Roth- 
Joe Chmura, and Winthrop Vail. 

The swimming schedule this seas r. 
lists four home meets and three aw;iy

WMUA Facilities Excel, 
Says Director Langill 

"WMUA set up as it is now is far 
more complete than the average col- ; 
lege radio station," Wayne Langill, 
Director of the University station re- 
vealed upon his return from the In- 
tercollegiate Broadcasting System 

Held this past weekend at Wesley- 
an College, the conference was 
marked by student representatives 
from radio stations located at several 
New England Colleges. 

WMUA is one of the two colleges 
in New England whose radio stations 
include tape recorders as part of 
their equipment, Wayne reported. 
Yale University is the only other 
school in this region which owns one. 

"WMUA now has every type of 
recording equipment available at its 
disposal," Wayne said. "This will be 
used in picking campus highlights." 

Personal contacts made with direc- 
tors of radio departments of many- 
colleges in this area will prove valu- 
able, Wayne said. This is where 
WMUA will gain in spite of the fact 
that many of the ideas suggested at 
the conference were ones which had 
already been brought up earlier this 
year by members of the station staff 

This University was the only one 
represented, Wayne stated, which has 
an active public relations department. 
That the success of the college radio 
station depends on a good publicity 
department seems to be overlooked by 
other schools. 

Also discussed at the conference 
were problems of soundproofing stu- 
dios, new types of microphones, and 
new methods of programing and tran- 

A New England Conference is now 
being planned, Wayne said, as a re- 
sult of the IBS conference. This is to 
be held to discuss among other things 
the exchange of programs with coi-

College Color Gloves 

Princeton athletic officials gave the 
fad a boost in the East when they 
arranged to outfit their entire cheer- 
ing section in orange and black gloves 
for the Princeton-Yale game. This, 
however, is not the only startling in- 
novation in men's haberdashery. 

Fashion designers in New York de- 
cided this fall that it was time for 
a change in men's bib and tuckery, 
and they have advocated the follow- 
ing for a complete college wardrobe: 
cloth-of-gold sport shirt with three- 
quarter length sleeves, brocaded silk 
pajamas (most men still are not 
wearing nighties), and polka-dotted 

Beast And The Best 

The sudden turn to color was mo- 
tivated by the desire to bring out the 
"beast" as well as the "best" in man. 
Fashion authorities intend to accom- 
plish this by accentuating his lusti- 

Since the male's resistance to flat- 
tery is not any different from that of 
a woman's, designers are appealing to 
the gentlemanly ego by calling their 
wardrobe changes the "bold" look. 
And consumers fall for it. 
Polka Dots Yet Hey 

Not only suspenders, but ties and 
garters, too, have taken on polka-dots. 
The clothing market has been stormed 
by these daring dots, a full inch in 
diameter and patterned on a promi- 
nent solid background. 

In suits the new look suggests 
lapels, sporting a one inch welt seam 
at the edge, that spread an inch wider 
on either side of the manly chest 
Suits are cut easier and with more 
fullness through the chest. Rounded 
hips and suppressed waists are all 
the rage. 

Today the modern-minded man is 
looking for the athletic angle, from 
shoulder point to waist, .and the 
blending flat line, from the waist 
through the hip. And we approve. 

Who says that the masculine in- 
stinct about clothing is not as chic 
as that of les femmes. 

Drivers between the ages of 18 
and J4 were involved in 27 per cent 
of all fatal accidents last year. The 
total for last year was :}2,.'}(X) men, 
women, and children killed by motor 

Here's another interesting figure: 
Last year one in every :!,'2.'i<*> persons 
in our age group was killed in an au- 
tomobile accident. The approximate 
enrollment on this campus is ;*2()() per- 
sons. That one could be you. 
Holiday Death Tolf High 

Facts and figures; there's a million 
of 'em, all worthwhile if they help 
you to think, and keep on thinking 
about the potential death which is al- 
ways riding with you, or walking 
with you if you're a pedestrian. 

Facts and figures particularly re- 
lated to the Christinas season are 
these : 

1. Many of the accidents involving 
persons under 25 occur at Christmas 
time, when their use of cars is at a 

High Pedestrian Death Rate 

2. The pedestrian death toll is 
highest in December. Last year 58 
per cent more pedestrians were killed 
in December than the average for the 
first 11 months of 1947. 

8. In Massachusetts, dl pedestri- 
ans walked to their deaths last win- 
ter, 26 of them in the month of De- 
cember, more than the total for any 
other month, winter or summer. 

4. On Christmas Eve and Christ- 
mas Day deaths from motor vehicles 
are two to three times the daily av- 

Math, Science Stay 
Dean Machmer Says 

by Lillian haras 

There is little chance of the U. of 
M. dropping math from the list of 
freshman requirements said Dean 
Machmer in an interview this week. 

That no other course offers such 
vigorous mental training with ac- 
companying development of the rea- 
soning powers was the main point 
of his argument. 

The dean said that math for the 
liberal arts school would continue to 
be required as long as that division 
desires that such a course be pur- 
sued. This dictum has been set be- 
cause the professors in the school of 
liberal arts feel that students should 
have a well rounded education which 
includes math. 

May Be Necessary Later 

Since many graduates find them- 
selves doing work not related to the 
field in which they majored in their 
undergraduate days, math may some- 
day be of prime importance to them. 
Speaking of himself as an illustra- 
tion of this, the Dean related that in 
his undergraduate days he majored in 
ancient languages, but when he re- 
ceived an offer to teach math, he 
brushed up on it and accepted the 

Necessary science requirements are 
a part of the curriculum for essential- 
ly the same reasons. Too, if they were 
not included, students would have a 
greater number of electives resulting 
in a possible overburdening of other 

Until courses can be found which 
will give students the equivalent men- 
tal training, the U. of M. will continue 
its current math and science require- 
ments, concluded Dean Machmer. 

Maybe these things don't interest 
you, but they are worth bearing in 
mind when you're OB the way to and 
from school, or when you're driving 
your own car, or the family's, for the 
round of visiting, ('hristmas parties, 
and the New Year's celebration. 

There is nothing quite SO sickening 
or unsightly as an individual-or even 
worse, a group of individuals-all 
ground up by glass and metal right 
at a time when they are having a lot 
of fun, or any time for that matter. 
Driving Tips 

You may know the following list of 
rules like a book, but read them any- 
way, and recall all the other rules 
you should know and then use them 
all. What little effort is involved may 
mean your life. 

To combat the six evils of cold 
weather driving— snow, sleet, fog, 
frost, ice and snow, insurance experts 
have come up with the following six 

1. Get the "feel" of the road. Be- 
fore you start out, try your brakes 
while driving slowly awav from traf- 

2. Drive according to road condi- 
tions. Remember you may have to 
stop in a hurry. 

U. Use tire chains on ice and snow. 
They aren't a cure-all for winter dan- 
gers but they do help. 

4. Keep your windshield, windows 
and headlights clear of ice, snow and 
frost. You have to see danger to a- 
void it. 

5. To stop on slippery surfaces, 
pump your brakes gently. Jamming 
them may throw you into a skid. 

(>. Keep your distance. Remember 
it takes from three to twelve times 
M long to stop on iceandsnow as it 
does on dry concrete.
